Yonezawa Uesugi Museum: Thomas the Tank Engine Exhibition


  • Yonezawa Uesugi Museum: Thomas the Tank Engine Exhibition<p>(한국어・汉语)</p>

For the 20th anniversary of the opening of the Yonezawa Uesugi Museum, the museum will be holding a Thomas the Tank Engine special exhibition. The story was created by the British Reverend Wilbert Awdrey, who improvised a story about anthropomorphized trains to his son Christopher while he was recovering from illness. These stories were published in 1945 as The Railway Series. Taking place on the fictional British isle of Sodor, the stories began to be published at a pace of once per year, becoming renowned around the world. 


The books were published in Japan in 1973, and the stories became even more popular upon the start of the animated series in 1984. In 1990, the animated series began airing in Japan, becoming established as a popular title that children could enjoy together with their parents. In the story, Thomas hopes to become a useful tank engine, making mistakes and reflecting on them upon the way. The story, showing Thomas dealing with his friends and various tasks, covers themes such as honesty, sincerity, effort, and cooperation. Viewers can see the moral values put in by Reverend Awdrey by enjoying Thomas the Tank Engine.


The exhibition will consist of figures of the characters and elements of the animated show, as well as original drawings made for the picture books, including some from works being shown in Japan for the first time. While enjoying the items on display, visitors can get a chance to revisit the message and values that Reverend Awdrey conveyed to his children.


Exhibition period: June 26 (Sat.), 2021 - August 1 (Sun.), 2021
(Closed on July 28 (Wed.))


Open hours: 9:00 - 17:00
