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.

  • 文化財の集合体

    鶴岡市のど真ん中、鶴岡公園の隣に有ります。駐車場完備です。入館料は800円。敷地内には、旧庄内藩ゆかりの建物や、明治維新後の官公庁舎を移築されています。沢山あるので、全部中を覗くと、それなりの時間がかかります。旧藩主(酒井家)の御子孫は、未だに鶴岡にお住まいのようです。
  • いい雰囲気

    鶴岡市にあるちょっと古風な建物を集め残している博物館です。あまり人もおらずゆっくり鑑賞できます。建物自体もいい感じなのですが、中には古い道具などが展示されていてなかなか見ごたえがありました。
  • 歴史ある貴重な建物が並んでいます

    江戸時代から明治にかけての建物、旧警察署・藩主の隠居所・古民家等が移築され、それぞれの建物には多くの資料が展示されています。ここは庄内の歴史を知るうえで訪れてみたいエリアですね。
