    In the freshwater Museum that went with the family. Wasn't expecting too much, but very generous and helpful. There can be kinda crazy to kids corner. At 750 yen (adult) children up to junior high school students free of charge again. Visitors to museums, parking was free.

    Quite a good travel spot in Kusatsu. You can take a bus from the Kusatsu Station. The museum is mostly about the history of the areas around Biwako, and there is even a quite large aquarium at the end. If you have a family this place is definitely worth it for a few hours' quality time, the only downsides that I can possibly think of being kind of isolated with no other tourist site nearby and rather weak foreign language support.

    A ticket agency clerk said that you couldn't buy a ticket because it was already 4 o'clock when it was just 4 o'clock.

    Unfortunately the best part of the museum was closed. It's a nice place to learn about Biwa Lake's ecosystem.

    ☆ exhibits was a great Museum of Lake Biwa, Buri for the animals and people who live, learn the quantity / quality and comfortable to see all takes time. Particularly memorable in the museum exhibit is the replica of the skeleton of a "picture" Yellow River"had inhabited the area around Lake Biwa. Overwhelmed by a huge, long fangs (^ ^) can look up can walk underneath it. You can see the various creatures that inhabit the Aquarium aspects in the second half of the route was thinking just like Museum exhibits ☆ Lake Biwa in the big tank. Especially memorable is "ancient fish" alive and moving. Was impressed and surprised by its size (^ ^) was also rich assortment of Museum shops. We went by bus from Kusatsu station. Now go before considering that in bus fares, travel time and admission, go minds wandered, but was disappointed in the good sense (^ ^) is a Museum of recommended ☆
