Tsuchiura City Museum (土浦市立博物館)

3.5

Museum / Science Museum

A history museum adjoining Kijo Park (Tsuchiura Castle ruins) 10 minutes from the Tsuchiura-kita or Sakura-tsuchiura interchanges on the Joban Expressway. The first floor of the museum is dedicated to the culture of the Tsuchiya clan, the clan which once rules the area, and includes displays of swords and tea ceremony implements owned by the clan. The second floor looks at local life as it has been supported by Lake Kasumigaura and introduces the history and culture of Tsuchiura. The museum changes the contents of its exhibits on a seasonal basis and also holds special exhibitions. There's also an interactive learning space in the second-floor exhibition hall.

Review of Tsuchiura City Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/06/16 入館料は105円
江戸時代に土浦城の本丸があった亀城公園に隣接した場所に立地しています。無料の施設も全国あちこちで見かけますが、105円の低価格の入館料で入場できる博物館は珍しいですよね。土浦市を中心に県南地区の歴史や風土を学ぶことができます。土浦が陸運だけでなく水運で江戸や東北、房総と繋がって要所であったことがより理解できました。
Reviewed:2019/01/27 土浦の歴史が良く分かります
主要都市によくある資料館ですが、料金・展示内容等、かなりのレベルだと思います。土浦が豊かな土地で、古くから栄えていたことが良く分かりました。
Reviewed:2018/10/09 この博物館の展示は、土浦のことがよくわかり、素晴らしい
土浦城址の亀城公園の隣にある市立博物館。土浦城東櫓の資料館と共通の入館券で100円です。
大きな資料館で、土浦の歴史、文化がとてもよくわかります。展示と解説が素晴らしい。見学時は土浦藩主土屋家の刀の特別展示がされていましたが、土屋家に伝わる刀が素晴らしく、刀を通じた大名家どおしの交流もとても興味深いものでした。
この博物館は、格安の入館料も含め、公立の博物館では出色の博物館です。

          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.
