A museum that opened recently in Tokyo’s Nihonbashi district is offering visitors the chance to learn more about medicine, for free.

The Kusuri Museum, run by pharmaceutical firm Daiichi Sankyo Co., uses computer graphics and other visual displays to show visitors how medicines are derived from plants, bacteria and other compounds, work on 3-D puzzles to create medicines, and even play games in which medicines battle viruses and bacteria. A theater also screens films on the history and future of medicine.
