One of Miraikan’s greatest values has been created by the many people who visit. Those countless stakeholders from all walks of life, include not only visitors from around the world, but also volunteers, supporters, researchers, and even
heads of state., They come together at Miraikan and jointly create new values. In the workplaces within Miraikan, exhibits are created and experiments are conducted on cutting-edge research. Specialists many times work with the general
public to discuss and share ideas about the future of our society.
There are also those involved who have interacted with Miraikan for many years, such as volunteers who first came as visitors when they were children. Others have contributed exhibit ideas that were realized in cooperation with our staff. Miraikan hosted the Science Center World Summit in 2017 that built relationships with other countries, and acted as a central hub for the world’s science centers, through dialogue with the leaders of those centers as well as many other stakeholders.
