Constructed in 1935 in the Modernist style, Takarazuka Bunkasōzōkan (Takarazuka Renaissance Hall of Performing Arts) was once home to the Takarazuka Music School. For 45 years between 1937 and 1998—excluding some years before and after World War II—it produced a steady stream of Takarazuka performers. Today, Takarazuka locals use it as a venue for performing arts activities. On the second floor is the Sumire Museum, which displays items related to the Takarazuka Revue. The collection comprises teaching materials used at the music school and 800 posters, including ones from the first performance of the former Takarazuka Grand Theater.
