MSDF Sasebo History Museum was opened in 1997, making use of a part of the building of “Navy Club” that was already there. Navy Club was a facility where naval officers had informal talks, and used to entertain foreign fleet officers and as an accommodation for officers of fleets.

Sasebo Navy Club was established in 1893 in Tanigou-cho, then transferred to the current place and newly built in 1898. The first building had a wooden structure, then it was rebuilt into a two-story reinforced-concrete building (partially three-story) later. After the war, this building was requisitioned by the U.S. Army and used as a navy club house. You can still see the atmosphere of the days of Navy Club with the design around the entrance, octagonal decorative roof, etc.
