    A science museum covering floors 20th to 23rd of the high rise Big-I building in Ekimae 2-home, Koriyama City. The museum is made up of multiple areas including the Exhibition Zone where you can learn about space with a variety of hands-on exhibitions including a simulated experience of the moon's gravity. There's also the observation lobby and a Railroad Area with a huge train diorama. On the top floor is a planetarium with a state-of-the-art projector which can display nearly 650,000 stars including the Milky Way. It holds the Guinness World Record for the World's Highest Planetarium (104.25 meters).

    Superb 360 degree view from the top, lots of interesting space exhibits and hands on things to have a go at. The G force sphere is fun so long as you dont have motion sickness! Have a go at what it...

    Fukushima Pref. Koriyamashi Yasuharamachi Oyaji 130-2
    This art museum is run by Koriyama City in Fukushima Prefecture. It has four major exhibitions: British art including Turner, modern Japanese art including Ryusei Kishida, works from artists hailing from Koriyama such as Yukimura and wood block printing such as book cover designs and so on. Exhibition contents are changed four times a year so visitors can see different works each season. There is a bronze statue in the garden which visitors can enjoy strolling around.

    I visited when no special exhibits were going, but the building and setting and cafe are worth the visit. Small but interesting permanent collection.

    Fukushima Tamura-gun Onomachi Ononiimachi Nakadori 2
    A multipurpose cultural facility made up of a library, art museum, local history museum, and the Oka Toshio Memorial Museum. Through actual materials, models, and pictures the local history museum will introduce you the history, nature, and lifestyle of Ono town. We also highly recommend visiting the Oka Toshio Memorial Museum where records and other materials will teach you about Oka Toshio, a lyricist native to Ono town.

    コードF8で訪問しました。 図書館は、約6万3000冊の蔵書をはじめ、視聴覚資料の貸出しを行っているということです。 郷土史料館は、実物資料や模型、写真パネルなどを用い、小野町の歴史と自然、人々の暮らしを紹介しています なかなか建物は古いですがお洒落な感じです。

    Fukushima Sukagawa-shi Ikegamicho 6
    Open in 1970, this was the first public museum opened in the prefecture. This facility in one corner of Midorigaoka Park has a permanent exhibit on the history and culture of Sukagawa, and holds temporary exhibits four times a year. The permanent exhibit of the Denzen Aodo Copperplate Print collection shows pieces by western-style copperplate printer Denzen Aodo, who was born in Sukagawa during the late Edo period. His major series, Copperplate Prints of Famous Scenes in Edo, are handmade copperplate prints depicting the daily life and work of the people of Edo. Aodo studied both copperplate print and Western art techniques, and his use of minute perspective and chiaroscuro earned him extremely high reputation.

    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。
