The company uploaded the image of the Nintendo Museum on its Instagram account. When it finishes in late March 2024, you’ll be able to go in and check out all of the products that Nintendo released in the past. This will likely include consoles (much like the display in the Nintendo shop in New York) and accessories like R.O.B. There is also a ? Block on top of the roof. Nintendo first unveiled this aspect of the building in its September 14, 2023 Nintendo Direct stream.

News of the museum and gallery first appeared in 2021. Nintendo is building it in Uji, Kyoto. The reason why it’s building it in Kyoto is likely due to the fact that Nintendo opened its first HQ in Kyoto back in 1889. Back then, Nintendo made hanafuda cards and playing cards. There’s a chance that the museum and gallery will also introduce that aspect of Nintendo’s history, instead of simply starting from its video game ventures. For reference, Nintendo first started working on video games in 1972.

The Nintendo Museum should finish construction in March 2024.
