  • Very big place used for temporary exhibitions of the National museum. The interesting ones attract a huge crowd, so be ready to queue for 3 hours or so after you get in (you might have to queue outside before too). The building is nice and well maintained, serving right its purpose.
  • Beautiful and modern facility as a museum and a community hall.
  • It's good
  • 2nd floor is a meeting space for special exhibitions. 1st floor is a Museum of archaeology exhibition is on permanent display. In the archaeology exhibit at the entrance greeted "haniwa armored Warrior" (a national treasure). * Look in the textbook haniwa-Kun is. Since is packed with items of ancient bronze and bronze mirrors, bronze swords,. Museum exhibition space is so large, so such as haniwa are not interested in that look good and. I can enjoy. In the exhibition room, 1st floor's has a number of chairs and sofas. Can be used as a seating area.
