The British Antique Museum (BAM) officially held its grand opening in Kamakura on September 23, and kicked things off with a very detailed Sherlock Holmes Exhibition.
BAM Kamakura’s intention is to pass on the importance and wonder of long inherited objects and historical personnel to many people.
BAM’s architecture was designed by Kengo Kuma. He incorporated the signature Kamakura architectural concept by using Kamakura carvings on Hinoki (Japanese cypress trees) for the exterior of the building.
Inside the museum, visitors can view exhibits of authentic antiques dating back more than 100 years. Each floor is coordinated with themed spaces such as the study and living space of the great Sherlock Holmes and Victorian era, and a vintage London cab will be on the grand floor. Visitors can step right into the world of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's legendary detective.
You can find access information about the museum and exhibit at the museum's official homepage.
