The Centennial Museum of Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology (opened in 1978) was established as the core project to commemorate the centennial history of the university, in 1975, when Tokyo University of Mercantile Marine, a former entity of Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology, opened on November 1, 1875, by designating the Seimyo-maru, moored on the downstream of Eitai Bridge on Sumida River, as a school ship. Unlike a general maritime museum, this museum mainly collects and exhibits a century of educational history of merchant ships by universities and related maritime history.
