Immerse yourself in the legendary samurai history of Japan

At Europe's sole Samurai Museum in Berlin, cutting-edge displays blend with the rich tapestry of Japanese history. Right from when you enter, you'll embark on a journey back in time, exploring over a millennium of samurai history. The museum houses a vast private collection of 4000+ authentic artifacts spanning from the late Kofun to early Meiji periods. Through a 1500 sqm interactive course, visitors explore the world of samurai with over 1000 objects, including armor, weapons, decorative items, and more, shedding light on feudal Japan's way of life. Temporary exhibits bridge samurai influences to modern culture.

Discover key cultural insights and elements

Multimedia installations, gigapixel images, and CT scans provide unique insights into traditional Japanese craftsmanship. The museum's Noh theater and tea house, offer a glimpse into samurai cultural influences through realistic projections, while live Noh excerpts and Taiko performances engage visitors every 30 minutes. Collector Peter Janssen's passion for samurai artifacts led to the museum's inception. The exhibition extends beyond weaponry, featuring textiles, paintings, tea sets, and Buddhist sculptures. One highlight of the museum is the Matsudaira clan's 17th-century armour.
