As a project to commemorate the 120th anniversary of the founding of Osaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry, EMCI was established by OCCI in June 2001, as Japan’s first unique Museum to introduce entrepreneurs who greatly contributed to developing modern industries of Japan as well as to supporting the people’s livelihood.
The main exhibition area introduces 105 entrepreneurs from Osaka, by era and by industry, including such founders of Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. Ltd. known for its ‘Panasonic’ and also of Nisshin Shokuhin Co. Ltd. that developed the world’s first instant noodle. Come and directly feel their enterprising spirit - lofty ambition, abundant ideas, keen insight, unique points of view, ingenuity and contrivance, will to carry through etc.
With visitors from more than 110 countries around the world since the opening, EMCI has gained public favor, as seen from comments such as: “One hour of visit has taught us much about the process of Japan’s modernization or history of Japan’s industries” or “greatly encouraged and inspired by feeling entrepreneurs’ enthusiasm.”
