The Keio History Museum has launched our online gallery! We`d like to introduce some of the ways you can experience our exhibits and collections online, whether you`ve visited us before or want to enjoy the museum atmosphere from home.
Exhibition Hall 360 Degree Tour
We have recorded our Special Exhibitions with the help of a 360 degree camera. Using these interactive videos, you can enjoy our already completed exhibitions once more from home. * The video starts at the Museum entrance. Using the map on the top-right of the video, you can change the view and move the camera around the exhibition space. Where the `i` mark is displayed on-screen, you can click through for more details on the displayed items. Finally, by pressing the button on the bottom-right, you can switch to `full screen` mode, allowing you to enjoy the exhibition at its fullest scale.

Mini Lecture Series
Our first Mini Lecture is on the Special Exhibition `May 15th, 1868: Fukuzawa Yukichi`s Weyland Lecture`, held from July 5th to October 9th, 2021. This lecture answers such questions as `what is Weyland`s book of economics?`, and `what is the meaning behind Keio`s school song`, in a clear and engaging talk hosted by Professor Ikeda Yukihiro of the Department of Economics.
