Sendai City Museum仙台市博物館

Museum / Science Museum

This museum primarily displays items related to the history and culture of the Sendai Clan, based on materials donated from the Date family. The trademark golden crescent moon crested helmet is a piece of the black lacquer five-layered body armor (an important cultural property) used by Lord Masamune Date, which is housed here along with the 8-meter-wide large painting of the ''Tempo Kuniezu Mutsu-no-Kuni Sendai-ryo.'' Also on display are many treasured archives related to the national treasures of the envoys to Europe during the Keicho Era, which are UNESCO World Heritages. Special exhibits and other scheduled exhibits are also held 3-4 times a year.

Review of Sendai City Museum

Reviewed:2018/11/21 Well presented Museum
We found Sendai a fascinating city with a very different character to the others we have visited in Japan. This museum gave many insights into the development of Sendai and the effect of the Date...

We were approached by an English-speaking docent, who gave the two of us a personal tour of some of the highlights of this excellent museum.

We caught the subway and walked about 10-15 minutes...

Miyagi Main Areas


Lying along the northeastern coast of Japan, Miyagi prefecture is home to lashings of natural parks, oysters, and hot springs. While the bustling city of Sendai offers some simple city entertainment, it's the Matsushima islands that deserve the most attention, having boosted the prefecture's reputation as one of Japan's most scenic views.
