Museum of Yokohama Urban History exhibits the history of the city of Yokohama in three zones: "Urban Formation," "Citizens' Life," and "Yokohama Culture," focusing on the pre-WWII period when the present framework of the city was formed.
The museum was built in 1929 as the "Former Yokohama Municipal Telephone Office" (a historical building recognized by the City of Yokohama), and is a valuable historical building that reminds us of the city of Yokohama in the period of earthquake reconstruction. The atmosphere of those days remains in the former main Entrance. Several times a year, special themed exhibitions are held.
