Ibaraki Prefectural Archives and Museum (茨城県立歴史館)

4.0

Museum / Science Museum

"A facility which serves as both an archive and museum located a two-minute walk from the ""Rekishikan Kairakuen Iriguchi"" bus stop on the bus leaving from Mito Station on the JR Joban Line. The facility presents the results of research into materials and artefacts connected to the history of Ibaraki. The facility's spacious grounds also enclose an Edo period farmhouse and Meiji period Western-style school house which were dismantled and moved here. The facility's standing exhibit focuses on the history of Ibaraki. Easy to understand videos, graphic panels, and other exhibits present the prehistoric, ancient, near-modern, and modern history periods of the prefecture. The facility also holds lectures and activities for elementary and junior high school aged children."

偕楽園も常盤神社もシーズン中は大変混みあいますが、ここはだいたい空いてます(笑)でも明治時代?の西洋風木造建築の外観も素敵だし、展示物も茨城県のいろはがたくさんあり、観光客にも地元客にもおすすめです。とてもノスタルジックな雰囲気をたのしめますよ-

          Just a stone’s throw from Tokyo, Ibaraki is a coastal prefecture that has mastered juxtapositions, where old shrines meet new scientific discoveries and traditional gardens are frequented by the inventors of some of the newest technology. Head to Mito City's Kairakuen - one of Japan's Three Great Gardens - in spring to experience the cellestial blooming of fantastic cherry blossoms at the annual sakura festival.
