Maizuru Red Brick Museum
The oldest steel frame brick building in Japan.
This museum is housed in the oldest steel-framed brick building still in existence in Japan. The building is a part of the famous redbrick warehouses of Maizuru. Utilizing a former torpedo warehouse that was built in 1868, the museum displays a history of brick and steel from all over the world. The museum building itself is an exhibit in its own right as it is one of the important cultural assets of Japan.
