An interactive museum exhibition that explores the gender role variations within the archetypical tomboy has been announced for Tokyo. Tomboy Masaaki Kamiya, a former manufacturer of bicycle parts, envisioned the interactive museum in association with Japanese media company NHK.

The museum will feature slides from early cartoons, toys, games and stage plays that illustrate the ever-evolving the different kinds of tomboys that emerged through the centuries. There will also be videos about role playing for boys and girls, and historical videos that recount the concept of tomboys in earlier years.

In the exhibition, visitors will be invited to design their own fictional tomboys, who can use a computer system to draw superhero uniforms and other warlike clothes. Girls’ tomboys are given smart phones to record their own real-time self-portraits and practice their natural friendliness.

Visitors will also be able to dress their own dolls, as well as cook and play kitchen routines. There will also be interactive exhibits including games that are designed to have your male and female sides have a friendly dispute.

See a video animation about the exhibition below.
