  • Many more exhibits and much cheaper than the museum on top of the castle site. I used to volunteer here so I can promise there are are some very important historical artifacts in a great variety. Howe...  more »
  • I stopped by had time in Sendai. I think access to hasn't hung a 10-minute walk from Metro International Center before. It is up next on the other side, Goshiki-NUMA (pond) across the International Center from the station. Flow of ruins of Sendai Castle 1 image, so when you visit is a good location. Furthermore, in the evening, 16:45 and early closing time, please note. Admission is 460 yen, Sendai whole day pass ticket type if you have pull 2 percent more and save money. Exhibits include a famous date Masamune's armor and folding screens, but interesting visited I of keicho missions (hasekura tsunenaga) came out in the textbook and Sendai Castle. Not very interested in the history of the children soon became a benchwarmer. It is recommend to still are interested in the history and culture.

  • Fantastic, very spacious and had many employees and volunteers who were eager to explain the history behind the exhibits. Photos were allowed of most of the items, and there was an interactive area towards the end. The bathrooms were clean and souvenir shop appreciated. There was also a free cloakroom/locker service which alllowed us to enjoy the museum without carrying too many things around.
  • There was a very interesting exhibit about the city founder Date Masamune (sp?). His story was painted in graphic novel style on canvases that spanned the perimeter of the large room. I could have viewed Date's armor but didn't feel like paying the extra Yen.
  • Free, WiFi. good
  • Interesting museum about the history of Sendai city. At the time of my visit they had an arts exhibition with works of Myamoto Musashi. Don't miss the lovely tea house to the left of the main entrance.
  • Wonderful and small museum. Doesn't require all day to finish all sections of the museum.
