  • Come inside the Mazda Museum in Japan with Google Maps Street View
  • Witness the moving 93-year history of Mazda now available online
  • Explore current Mazda models, advanced technologies and futuristic concepts

Mazda Motor Corporation is introducing a new service at the Mazda Museum in Hiroshima, Japan and is now offering a virtual tour of the main exhibition areas via Google Maps Street View*. This is a new and unconventional way for visitors to experience the Mazda spirit as well as learning about its technological breakthroughs and 93-year heritage.

The easiest way to access the virtual Mazda Museum is by going to Mazda’s global website at At the Museum Guide, visitors can tour five areas of the museum – the Entrance Hall, the History and Future areas as well as the Technology and Rotary Engine exhibits – by clicking on the appropriate Google Street View link. They are taken into the museum itself for a near-reality experience with the possibility to turn in any direction and even approach the multi-lingual text-displays close enough to read them.

The History exhibit lets visitors explore some of Mazda’s most legendary cars such as the amazing Mazda Cosmo Sport (110S) from the 1960s, RX-7s from the 1970s and 80s, and the original Mazda MX-5 roadster that went on to become one of the most popular two-seat sportscars in history.

At the Technology exhibit, Mazda displays its new fuel-saving technological approach ‘SKYACTIV’ which is currently available in Mazda’s new generation of award-winning Mazda6 and Mazda CX-5. (Direct Link: //

“A visit to the Mazda Museum is a must for anyone who loves cars,” comments Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director, Mazda UK. “For people interested in Mazda, the new Street View experience makes a visit to our headquarters possible without having to travel to Japan. Once inside the Museum, they can get to know the Mazda spirit in a very intimate and real way.”

The Mazda Museum is located near the company’s global headquarters in Hiroshima and first opened in May 1994. After a renovation project in 2005, which increased exhibition space, the museum offers six different exhibition areas and a gift shop with Mazda memorabilia.

Mazda Museum is open on weekdays, and offers guided group tours in Japanese and individual guided tours in Japanese and English. Reservations are required and can be made up to one year in advance via email at or by telephone at +81 (0) 82-252-5050. Admission is free.
