Admission Information
Individual Visitors
All participants have to leave the Learning Theater after each program. To ensure the best learning environment for the limited space, please reserve seats in advance for a specific date and time, according to the screening schedule. Although walk-in entrance is possible, the paid zone has limited capacity for each session, and as it can be full, we recommend reserving and paying in advance.

Group Visitors
Admission capacity is limited, so we ask group visitors to make advance reservations. It is also possible to book the museum for exclusive use. We can provide a program that meets the objectives of your itinerary or training plan, so please reach out to us.
