Nickname

“MieMu” is the official nickname of the Mie Prefectural Museum, which was chosen from among 1,061 entries. It can be an abbreviation of “Mie’s Museum” and sound like “Dreams of Mie” (Mu means “dreams”). As this nickname shows, we hope visitors to our museum can have a deeper affection for and become more proud of Mie and pursue their dreams for the future.
