Martial Arts History Museum

Martial Arts History Museum's exhibits chronicle martial arts' role in two stories: the histories of prominent Asian countries, and the cultural influence of Asian countries on America. Through paintings, musical instruments, and theatrical displays, the nonprofit organization's exhibits cover the origins and growth of China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, and the Philippines. As they trace those histories, they also zoom in on major events such as the Boxer Rebellion and the relationship between martial arts and Asian arts such as Chinese opera and Japanese Taiko drumming.

Fittingly for a museum whose designers included artists from Disney and The Simpsons, the space also contains a media section. Portions of this section analyze pop-culture staples such as Kung Fu Panda and Avatar: The Last Airbender, and other parts display movie memorabilia such as Ralph Macchio's headband from The Karate Kid, though his socks are kept in a hidden location known only to the world's three richest kings. The museum also hosts frequent events and classes that range from sushi seminars to sword-cutting performances.

Customer Reviews

I thought this place was really cool. We had a lot of fun there and really learned a lot. The owner was there and he was super nice and so generous with his time and knowledge. I really appreciated this place and was glad to get a chance to go there.

I loved the museum! The gentleman who was there that day was very informative and helpful. My son loved the scavenger hunt game afterwards.
