Meguro Parasitological Museum
The nn is a private research facility that was established
in 1953 with the private funds of a medical doctor, Satoru Kamegai. The
museum exhibits about 300 parasite specimens and related material. On
the first floor we present the “Diversity of Parasites” displaying various
types of parasitic specimens with accompanying educational movies.
The second floor exhibits are “Human and Zoonotic Parasites” showing parasite
lifecycles and the symptoms they cause during human infection. In addition
to research, the museum also performs other activities such as education
and provides special publications.
The museum has been admission free since it was established. However,
running the museum has become more costly, therefore, the contribution
is preferable and will be very much appreciated. This is 3 hour course.
