Fukui Prefectural Museum of Cultural History (福井県立歴史博物館)

4.0

Museum / Science Museum

The Fukui Prefectural Museum of Cultural History is a museum in Fukui City, Fukui Prefecture that is dedicated to the history and industrial heritage of the Fukui region. The authentic artifacts on display and the section dedicated to the period from the mid-1950s through to the early 1970s are of particular interest. In the “Life in the Showa Period” corner, which recreates life in both rural communities and towns in that era, there is plenty to inspire nostalgia among visitors who remember those times, including a reconstruction of a traditional farmhouse and of a Dagashiya (traditional Japanese sweet shop). The lighting, sound effects and other aspects of the displays are changed with the seasons, further enhancing the experience for visitors to the Museum. The Museum is around 10 minutes’ drive from JR Fukui Station.

Review of Fukui Prefectural Museum of Cultural History

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2017/11/12 Well laid out and presented small museum
We cam here on our way through town. The entry fee is 100 yen. The museum is small but very well laid out with good exhibits.

Well worth the time to get here. It gives a good look at Japanese...
Reviewed:2012/08/18 Must see if you are from USA!
The museum is a must see if you are visiting from the US. The art and other displays were wonderful -- a great way to experience the history of Fukui.
Reviewed:2019/10/17 福井の古代から幕末の展示
福井の歴史が古代から幕末まで展示されています。古墳の資料や城下町の暮らしや幕末維新に活躍した松平春嶽をめぐる人々の展示がありました。隣には名勝養浩館庭園があります。

          Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
