Mitsubishi Minatomirai Industrial Museum Marks 2.5 Millionth Visitor

TOKYO, Mar 14, 2016 - (JCN Newswire) - On March 13 the Mitsubishi Minatomirai Industrial Museum ("the Museum"), opened by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) in Yokohama in June 1994 to publicize the Company's products and technologies, foster exchanges with the local community, and promote interest in science and technology, welcomed its 2.5 millionth visitor to date. The Museum's 2.5 millionth visitor was Aoi Ono, a resident of Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture, who was visiting with his family. He received a special gift and flowers from Museum Director Toshiki Noso.

As the lucky 2.5 millionth visitor, Aoi Ono was presented with a 1:200 scale model of the MRJ (Mitsubishi Regional Jet), Japan's first passenger jet, made by Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation. The MRJ is currently undergoing flight testing. All subsequent visitors on the day were given original stickers, making for a very festive occasion.

The Mitsubishi Minatomirai Industrial Museum uses actual machinery and equipment, scale models and explanatory panels to present easy-to-understand introductions to MHI's state-of-the-art scientific technologies and products. Exhibits are divided into six zones. In 2014, a commemorative ceremony and various special events were held to mark the Museum's 20th anniversary. This year, on February 28 the newly refurbished "Aerospace Zone" was opened.

Here, visitors can view a full-size mockup of the MRJ's nose, forward fuselage, part of its main wing, and engine. They can also become familiar, through hands-on displays, with MHI's various aircraft and launch vehicle technologies. The opportunity to experience scientific technologies by seeing and touching real objects has been enthusiastically received, and as a result visitors to the Museum today span all age groups, from toddlers to elders.

After marking its 2.5 millionth visitor, the Museum will continue to periodically enhance its displays further and launch new programs on an ongoing basis.
