  • I did not expect much from the Museum but it was very educational and interesting. I left the place knowing a great deal about the Northern peoples. Highly recommended and do not miss it if you are at...  more »
  • To see. A beautiful Museum retracing the life of the peoples of the North, very well documented, very rich in explanations and objects which are perfectly set values. Not to be missed.

  • 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!
  • Very good place to learn about people in northern hemisphere, not just ainu people. Very informative with free english audio and information.
  • 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..
  • 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.
  • Really interesting museum on northern populations.
