入場券を買おうとしたら「本当にご覧になられますか?」と聞かれた
確かに内容は???的なものが多いのですが
他では見られない、貴重なものが展示されています

わくわく科学館という名前の通り、子供目線で作られていてとても楽しい場所でした。大人ももちろん楽しめます。

としか思えない。もし、そうじゃなかったら、イマイチ。ただ、奉仕といういみでは、とても有意義な施設。周りの公園もよい。皆で遊ぼうぞ!

          Just a stone’s throw from Tokyo, Ibaraki is a coastal prefecture that has mastered juxtapositions, where old shrines meet new scientific discoveries and traditional gardens are frequented by the inventors of some of the newest technology. Head to Mito City's Kairakuen - one of Japan's Three Great Gardens - in spring to experience the cellestial blooming of fantastic cherry blossoms at the annual sakura festival.
