Join us as we celebrate the opening of the incredible new temporary exhibition Samurai

and the Culture of Japan’s Great Peace.  Through more than 150 objects, many of which have never been on display, the exhibition explores the fascinating history of the samurai, from their early conflicts to 250 years of peace that concluded their reign. We’ll have games, craft activities, a scavenger hunt and performances. Come and explore Japanese history and the fascinating world of the samurai!
