Hideyo Noguchi Memorial Infectious Disease Museum


This is Japan's first permanent museum specializing in infectious diseases.
With the theme of "Connecting the past and present of infectious diseases to the future," this facility conveys the knowledge and experience that humans have built up from the past to the present, as well as the steps we are taking toward the future.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought back memories of past human struggles with infectious diseases, and it is expected that infectious diseases will continue to pose a threat to us in the future. In this context, the Noguchi Hideyo Memorial Museum of Infectious Diseases aims to be a place where people can learn to "act correctly based on correct knowledge" regarding infectious diseases.

The existing facility, which is an annex to the Hideyo Noguchi Memorial Hall, was renovated to create a museum that is differentiated from the memorial hall by taking advantage of the track record of the Hideyo Noguchi Memorial Foundation and the high level of expertise of the supervisors. The museum consists of two displays rooms, and we were involved in the entire process, from architectural renovation to displays design and construction, and signage, content, and leaflet concept design.

The Noguchi Hideyo Memorial Museum of Infectious Diseases has been working on this since 2021, in the midst of the pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic is an opportunity for all visitors to realize that infectious diseases are not a thing of the past, and so it was hoped that the museum would open as soon as possible in order to correctly understand what has happened from the past to the present and to widely communicate our path to the future. The museum also aims to contribute to the public by correctly communicating the latest knowledge from a medical perspective, including on COVID-19.

In order to present highly specialized information in an easy-to-understand manner, we incorporated the knowledge and expertise of the founding chairman and chairman of the board, who served as director of the National Institute of Infectious Diseases, and achieved this by working closely together to promote comprehensive implementation.
