Chido Museum

Museum / Science Museum
This is a museum in Kachu-Shinmachi Town, Turuoka City, Yamagata Prefecture which stores and displays 5,350 important items that fall under eight varieties of Important Tangible Folk-Cultural Properties relating to the heritage of the Shonai area. The museum takes its name from the Chidokan, the Shonai Clan’s samurai school, and items relating to that school are also on display. Several historical buildings such as the former Nishitagawa District Office and the old Tsurugaoka Police Station which are also important cultural properties were dismantled and rebuilt on the premises, which were the site of the Tsurugaoka Castle’s san-no-maru and the official residence of the Sakai family, the domain lord. The beautiful garden in shoin-zukuri style (a traditional style of Japanese residential architecture) is also worth seeing.

  • 瀟洒な洋館

    鶴岡城のお堀の西側によく目立つ洋館が2つ並んで建っていて致道博物館となっている。一方は威風堂々とした青い旧警察署庁舎だが、それと並んで建つ渋谷家住宅は、細い尖塔が美しく、可憐なお嬢様という雰囲気を見せている。
  • 茅葺屋根の古民家

    鶴岡駅から庄内交通バスで約10分。致道博物館の中に佇む茅葺屋根の古民家風の佇まいです。 内部には当時の人々の暮らしを伝える生活道具などが保管されていて、当時の生活ぶりが偲ばれます。
  • 豪雪地帯の民家

    鶴岡公園近くの致道博物館に移築されている、豪雪地帯の民家。田麦俣の多層民家、となっています。家の中は、農村の生活風景が目にうかぶような、質素ですが、堅実で、日本の原風景のような民家です。国の重要文化財に指定されています。
