(3.8/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
The Gifu City Museum of History is a city-supported history museum located in the city of Gifu, Gifu Prefecture, Japan. Located in Gifu Park at the base of Mount Kinka, it is in the heart of Gifu City's sightseeing area.The museum primarily focuses on the history and traditional crafts of the surrounding area and includes a recreation of a Warring States Period free market that was created by Oda Nobunaga, a leading feudal lord of the 16th century, as well as many hands-on exhibits. However, the museum often hosts special exhibitions, which cover a wide variety of themes.HistoryPlanning for the museum began in 1972 as a result of an initiative by the local Social Education Committee. Construction was completed in 1985 and the museum opened in November of that year. In March 2005, after undergoing extensive renovations, the museum held a grand renewal opening, just in time for its 20th anniversary that November.Currently, both the Eizō & Tōichi Katō Memorial Art Museum in Gifu Park and the Yanaizu Folklore Museum in Yanaizu-chō serve as branches to the museum.

  • Most here know of Gifu and I went twice this year. Special exhibition galleries and a comprehensive exhibition room, changed the theme a few times in special exhibition galleries in the exhibition has been made. The last "from Toyotomi to Tokugawa ' is seasonal (Taiga drama) a theme, now studying. But interesting is the General exhibit room. You could feel, watching Samurai and modern Gifu's past from prehistoric and ancient tombs. Anyhow in a short period of time. Also go.
