The museum first opened in 1987 as Bizen Osafune Museum, but reopened in 2006 as Bizen Osafune Sword Museum to focus its exhibits on Bizen swords. The museum offers visitors a chance to see live demonstrations of the making of Japanese swords as well, making it the only museum in the world that allows its visitors to not only appreciate famous swords on display, but also to see with their own eyes how beautiful Japanese swords made with refined traditional craftsmanship.
