Nijigen no Mori theme park, the anime-themed attractions park on Awaji Island in Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, is opening its Godzilla Museum ahead of the site’s Godzilla expansion.
In 2019, Nijigen no Mori announced a new Godzilla-themed area, featuring a huge Godzilla model. At 20m high, 25m wide, and 55m long, the replica is described as the “world’s largest life-size Godzilla.” The area was due to open in the summer 2020.
The theme park has announced it has opened the Godzilla Museum ahead of the opening of the rest of the themed area. The museum features dioramas of different scenes from the Godzilla films. Its rooms will be filled with over 80 Godzilla figures, as well as props used in the films, and prototype models of the different monsters.
The museum is accompanied by a gift shop selling Godzilla merchandise, and a restaurant serving speciality Godzilla dishes.
The advanced opening of the museum, gift shop and restaurant will end on August 31, and will remain closed until the rest of the Godzilla area opens.
