Like many museums across the world, The Studio Ghibli Museum in Japan had to close its doors due to COVID-19. Some museums are offering virtual tours and Studio Ghibli is just one which has offered us a rare treat – a glimpse into the exiting world behind Studio Ghibli.

The Museum does not allow photography and is known for its elusiveness, limited bookings and opening times. But now, this weird and wonderful creative world has been opened up to fans through videos on their recently launched YouTube channel.

From the first video, fans are transported to entrance of the museum showing the beautiful vine mural featuring many well-known characters from films. This is called the the “Space of Wonder”. The second video takes us into the creative space of making films, and the third shows the Museum after dark with the famous My Neighbor Totoro stained glass windows.


Check out all virtual tours of The Studio Ghibli Museum here. For those wanting to be transported into the magical stories from the world famous studio, Studio Ghilbi’s entire back catalog is now available on Netflix.
