  • Research findings in excavations are exhibited in the Museum. And go back to the old buildings, household goods and hit that display merchandise! Have initial home appliances such as refrigerators, washing machines, televisions and toys. Interested in closer to the distant past.

  • Ice cream tulips at the front entrance were almost in full bloom. Flowers are long because lower temperatures it is likely continue to bloom. You could see in the greenhouse plants, water lilies flowers etc. Of course in the Lake Biwa Lake, so watch for migratory birds in the winter.

  • Awesome museum. All animals are from the lake which is situated right on the side. Nice aquarium. Except for the small section about the oldest lake in the world. There is restaurant but also small eating area if you bring your own food. Loved to see the birds and insects. I want to visit again. If you live in shiga you can go for free the 3rd Sunday of every month. Cheers.
  • Expected it to be smaller. Fairly large museum with a small aquarium, including some rather large fish and salamander.
  • Nice place 😜
  • Very interesting and educational
  • Unfortunately the best part of the museum was closed. It's a nice place to learn about Biwa Lake's ecosystem.
