Niigata Manga Animation Museum

This museum introduces cartoonists and animators linked with Niigata. It features areas where guests can play with popular characters, learn about the process of making manga and animation and experience voice acting for themselves. There is also a mini-theater where manga and anime can be fully enjoyed. Throughout the year we also hold special exhibitions, one of our most popular features. At the museum shop we sell manga and anime goods along with products related to our special exhibitions.
