©Gosho Aoyama/Shogakukan ・Yomiuri Telecasting ・TMS 1996
Since it was first published in a weekly magazine in 1994, "Detective Conan" has transcended national boundaries, cultures, and generations and spread across the world; it is a comic with ongoing support. This exhibition allows people to experience and enjoy the process of scientific investigations, using Conan's familiar worldview as a base.
In this exhibition, visitors follow their detective memo, going around three areas, the "Crime Scene Inspection Area" where they gather evidence, the "Information-Gathering Area" to collect new information, and the "Lab Area" where they scientifically appraise their evidence, and then clarify the truth of the case. Look out for an original story not drawn in the original comics, only available in this exhibition.
The exhibition will allow you to experience the process of gathering evidence through observations, collection and analysis of information, and verification as well as the process of reaching logical deductions based on hypotheses. Furthermore, the exhibition will provide you with an opportunity to get a sense of the importance of unraveling matters through the selection and combination of science and technology.
