  • Looks pretty cool. It was nighttime, snowy, and really cold. Got a picture though. We walked by during the daytime and the doors were open.  more »

  • 2 floors of history stored in this place. Centrally located along odori park. Come if you like architecture and the story behind it
  • It's indeed full of history, and quite a lot of people were visiting. If I'm not mistaken, it used to be a school, where the students were the one who built Sapporo city. I met a woman at the second floor, who explained those things, guess she was a tour leader (?) One thing I'm a bit upset about is that the things on exhibition side were all in Japanese language, so kind of impossible to be understood by tourists like me 😂
  • Was there for the new year countdown. Museum was open till late. The concert during New year was a good setup
  • A great place to take photo and sketch some drawing. It's beautiful!
  • Very much impressed by the effort to keep history. The place is very well kept.
