Nintendo Gallery, as the museum is tentatively called, will be located in the city of Uji in Kyoto, is planned to be completed by March 2024. Inside, Nintendo’s historical products will be featured alongside various exhibits, experiences, and more.

Nintendo Gallery will be located on the site of the current Nintendo Uji Ogura Plant, which has been used to manufacture both playing cards and Hanafuda cards.
