Review of Tochigi Prefectural Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2017/10/13 Lots of information about Tochigi
This museum is the place to go if you want to learn more about all aspects of Tochigi prefecture - nature, history and so on. The sad point? There is nothing available in English.
Reviewed:2019/10/28 栃木県の歴史を知ることが出来ます
主に古墳時代から近代にかけての栃木県の歴史を知ることが出来ます。それ以前に関しては、一応恐竜の骨格レプリカとかありますけど、人寄せ程度です。
自分は、となりの群馬県の人間なのに、栃木県の歴史はほとんど知らなくて勉強になりました。あと、日光から中禅寺湖→戦場ヶ原→日光白根山と垂直的に動植物が変わっていく展示は好きデス。
Reviewed:2019/06/18 子供を連れて行きました。
中央公園内にある博物館です。入館料もお安いですし、展示物も定期的に変わります。
何度か行きましたが、無料開放日以外の日は凄く混んでいる事はなくてゆっくりと展示物を見る事が出来て良いと思います。

          Most visits to Tochigi revolve around Nikko, a small city home to the spectacular, lavishly decorated Toshogu Shrine and Nikko National Park with its mountains, lakes, waterfalls, onsen, and wild monkeys. Neighboring Oku-Nikko is an extension of the fantastic scenery famous for its autumn leaves, while Tochigi’s capital, Utsunomiya, is the only place in the world where you can find oya stone beautifully exhibited in temples and the Oya History Museum.
