Revisiting Siebold’s Japan Museum|Introduction


Siebold who came to Japan in the late Edo period brought back an extensive collection of materials relating to nature and life in Japan to Europe.
Thanks to Siebold’s collection of Museum Fünf Kontinente, Munich (MFK) and the relevant materials owned by the Brandenstein-Zeppelin Family who are the descendants of Siebold, the Siebold’s Japan Museum has come back to life for the first time in 150 years.
