Review of Byakkotai Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/07/06 Interesting exhibits
Pretty good English explanations for historical events most non-Japanese do not know about. Pretty surroundings.
Reviewed:2016/01/29 Interesting
It was really informative and interesting. Although, the bad side was that, it was relatively quite small and not really worth the price (in my opinion). But it is a must go, if you are near the area!

良くも悪くも昭和の博物館です。いかにもという古い展示が多くあり、鶴ヶ城など他の観光地と比べると見劣りします。

          Fukushima is a blend of fantastic scenery, delectable sake, and kaleidoscopic colors. This nature-rich prefecture displays its splendor from the hidden Abukuma Cave underground right to the top of its sky-high mountain road, known as the Bandai-Azuma Skyline.
