Do Diamond Princess items count? Or is that in the "Asterisk" wing of the museum?

All museums have one item on there bucket list of thing to have, some art galleries want a Rembrandt, car museums want a Lamborghini pro-to type, or a one off Bugatti, some war museums would like to own a Panzer 4 tank, I wonder if these museums want to get a "Abe mask" as they seem to be very rare.

Brian Whenway, that item would be a "Abe mask" that had been worn by PM Abe himself. I read he has stopped wearing them so it is getting rare now. I hope he has not disposed all he has used and should donate them to all these museums.

They should put that cruise ship outside the Covid museum, like they did a blue whale model outside Ueno museum.

The museum can have my Abenomask. Haven't opened it and probably won't. Useless. But somebody in Abe's circle got rich.

What a brilliant idea, obvious when someone says it but easily overlooked otherwise. So good for them.

Even though its called "Ultra Light" by Uniqlo and this is located in Hokkaido, the guy in the picture is wearing a down jacket in the middle of the summer.

Do they crank the museum air-con to eleven up there?

Other museums in the world also collect photos, short videos of life at home and short essays. It would be a good idea to put all those items from all over the world in one museum that can be accessed by an interactive virtual tour
