  • The facilities ethnographic museum in Japan, the Museum daily variety around, but not exhibited agricultural life is about here? Many exhibits of the collection hunting life, especially hunting there. High-latitude regions of the northern hemisphere this living environment is quite have in common seems, compares the wide range. Unfortunately only one exhibit for the scope of less space. You want to know more there will be. Its had, not a waste exhibits.

  • Tour d "one to two hours with about 900 objects in the far North, Ain course but also inuit, Lappish, etc. Many videos interesting themes. The Museum is served by bus from the train station and the port.

  • As someone who doesn't typically choose a museum as something to visit on a weekend or while traveling, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the Northern People's Museum. It is really well designed and has so much information. The entrance free is only 550 yen and includes a free audio guide which I recommend to anyone who is not a Japanese speaker. Without the guide I would probably be able to walk through the museum in 15-20 minutes but the audio guide makes you stop and listen and you end up finding out a lot more than if you just browsed all the items they have in their collection. I definitely recommend this museum if you are in the Abashiri area!
  • Such an amazing museum. I always loved geography and demographics and I was always fascinated by people living in extreme weather - and this museum is totally delivering that. Absolutely recommended.
  • Had a accident there due to the slippery floor but the staffs there gave us full help from sending us to hospital, accompany us till end of treatment, got us free walking stick and even send us back to our hotel..... Very touching moment for the whole afternoon and until today..
  • ¥800 gets you into both the permanent and special exhibitions. Audio guide was great and there are some interesting exhibits. Only disappointment was the lack of mammoth in the exhibit. We went there specifically for this and the best we got was a tusk.
  • Fascinating artifacts, beautiful​ly presented.
