Science Museum of Atomic Energy (原子力科学館)

4.0

Museum / Science Museum

This science museum, Japan's only one dedicated to nuclear power, is situated along National Route 245 an 18-minute drive from the Hitachi-minami Ota Interchange on the Joban Expressway. The museum contains exhibits which introduce the foundations behind atoms and nuclear energy. Visitors can directly look at, touch, and interact with the things they are learning about through exhibits such as a big screen theater showing computer generated videos and the world's largest cloud chamber, which makes it possible to see the natural radiation that is around us at all times. In addition, exhibits on incidents such as the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster and the Tokaimura nuclear accident convey safe ways of utilizing radiation to future generations.

Review of Nuclear Science Museum

Reviewed:2019/12/24 原子力というより放射線科学館
エネルギーとしての原子力に関しての展示は少ないです。一番おもしろかったのは空港のX線検査装置ですね。実物を操作できて、こんな風に映るのかと感心しきりでした。見学の所要時間としては1時間あれば十分ですね。

原子力推進に貢献された中曽根元首相がこの世を去られてしまいましたが、茨城県の功績も語り継ぐべき点が多いと思われます。開館以来の来館者数2,424,362人(2019/11/30現在)は意外に少なく、世間の関心の低さを象徴しているようで残念ですが、世界最大級のクラウドチェンバーは時の経つのを暫し忘れ宇宙に存在していることを実感できお薦めです。

原子力についてはいろいろ意見が分かれることと思いますが、それは置いておいて、物理学の発展は凄い!というのが第一の感想です。
原子力の仕組みや、利用について学べます。誰にでも分かりやすいというよりは、文字による説明が多かったように思います。理系色が強いので、好き嫌いは分かれるかもしれません。入館料は無料です。自然放射線が見える大型霧箱が見どころのようでした。
私が一番興味を持ったのは、近くにあるJ...

          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.
