The Yamagata Museum of Science and Industry is a fun, educational way to spend a cold winter day. The exhibits are fun and interactive and let both adults and children play and learn. The museum focuses on engineering and its impact on local industries. The main feature of the museum is the large Foucault pendulum, located in the center of a sprawling tower. Visitors can learn about the rotation of the earth by witnessing the pendulum from four different floors of a spiral staircase. The fourth floor features an interactive play area where primary school aged students can learn about science and engineering through games. Admission is free.
