    企画展だけだと無料で見学ができるようでしたが、常設展のほうも300円で見ることができます。 常設展のエリアには野馬追の様子とか、古い精錬所の復元などもあって南相馬の歴史を感じる展示がいろいろありましたが、20分程度のビデオは始まる時間に放送があり、ぜひ見ることをお勧めします。

    Fukushima Koriyama-shi Kaisei 5-25-63

    郡山駅からタクシーで約10分。あまり期待していなかったのだけど、尋常中学校の建物がそのまま保存されていて、教室の机、黒板、当時の教科書や文書まで保存されていてびっくり。壁だけは震災で崩れたので再生したそうですが、床や階段などはそのまま。期待以上でした。ただし、冬は暖房がないのでかなり寒いです。春、秋などに訪れることをお勧めします。

    Fukushima Pref. Onumagunshouwamura Sagura Uenohara 1

    ”からむし”は草の幹の繊維。この地方では、背高くまで育て、繊維を丁寧に取り出し、それを編みこんでいく伝統文化がありました。その反物は、絹や麻などに比べて段違いに軽く、夏の最高級呉服の反物として評価され、この地の最重要産業として受け継がれてきました。そのことが得心できます。
