The Museum of Matches


Match World is a virtual museum devoted to the match. The museum houses an awesome online collection of matchbox labels from around the world - mainly Japanese though - from the late 1800s to the 1930s. The hundreds of labels in the virtual galleries are only a fraction of the 30,000 or so in the museum’s Rankei Library.
