The first Paralympic Museum ahead of this year's Paralympic Games!

To mark 200 days to go until the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has announced that it will open its first Paralympic Museum later this year in the Japanese capital. Housed at Coredo Muromachi Terrace in Nihonbashi, Tokyo, with the cooperation of Mitsui Fudosan, the museum will operate from 25 August to late September and showcase the extraordinary history and growth of the Paralympic Movement.

Visitors to the museum will have the opportunity to learn more about the history of the Paralympic Movement and how, in just 60 years, the Paralympic Games have evolved into the World’s number one sporting event for driving social inclusion. With exhibitions dedicated to many Para sports, including those that featured at the first Paralympics in 1960, the museum will also excite and inspire with stories of legendary athletes whose remarkable performances have helped to transform global attitudes towards persons with disabilities.
