There are 2 ways to get to Mazda Motor Corporation’s Museum in Hiroshima. You can either go to the Mukainada Station by train or hire a chartered bus. But that’s IF you’re in Japan. If not, you can aways go the cheaper route and visit it using Google Street View.
Although not as extensive as the Honda Collection Hall or McLaren Technology Centre, this 20-year-old facility houses some of Mazda’s most historic machines on 2 levels. The short list includes the Cosmo Sport (110S) from the ’60s, RX-7s from the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s, the original MX-5 roaster, and of course, the legendary 1991 Le Mans 24 Hour winner, the 787B.
The display even has a dedicated section for what is Mazda’s greatest technological achievement, the Rotary Engine.
Likewise, it showcases the company’s newest “SKYACTIV” technology, which can be found in the newest generation of Mazdas.
This 360 deg. virtual tour gives anyone with a smart device or computer (and a decent web connection) access to the museum’s 5 areas in incredible detail. So much so that the high res images are clear enough to read through the museum’s literature.
The 5 areas to explore are:
