Sendai Kaleidoscope Art Museum

A glittering world extends out at the point where you look into it

The Kaleidoscope Art Museum stands at the entrance to Akiu Onsenkyo hot spring village. You can have fun with a variety of kaleidoscopes here. These include kaleidoscopes that are rare in the world, large mechanical kaleidoscopes and kaleidoscopes of various artists. Among these, there is an unusual kaleidoscope for which your appearance becomes part of the kaleidoscope. You can actually touch and see these kaleidoscopes. This makes it an exciting art museum for children and adults alike. It has been featured on a number of television shows. It is really worth seeing!

There are exhibition rooms on the second and third floors. There are many exhibits of one-of-a-kind in the world kaleidoscopes, the kaleidoscopes that glitter most in the world and many other valuable kaleidoscopes.

The first floor is home to a museum shop and experience area. There are many kaleidoscopes in the shop - from those at a reasonable price to those of artists. Choosing is fun! You can make a wonderful original kaleidoscope without the need for a reservation in the handmade experience area. Just select the beads and put them into your favorite tube for a simple experience.
