At the Roland R&D Center in Hamamatsu, Japan, we maintain a private museum that exhibits Roland and BOSS musical instruments that date all the way back to our foundation in 1972 and span the genre-defining musical eras of the '80s and '90s. The instruments on display are extremely important to us, and are still used as references for current product development.
While the museum is not open to the public, we are pleased to provide exclusive online access through a 360-degree VR experience. You can view the museum in a guided 360-degree video tour, or explore the displays at your own pace with a virtual walk-through in Google Street View.
"The History of Roland Innovation" exhibit presents many vintage musical instruments, from synthesizers, pianos, and organs to electronic drums, guitar products, recorders, sequencers, and more. We hope you enjoy your visit!
