  • 本格的な展示

    平民宰相として民衆の支持を集めた、原敬の記念館です。遭難時の服や遺品等も展示されていて、想像以上に本格的なものでした。

    盛岡市内にある岩手県出身の平民宰相原敬の生家に隣接して建設された記念館。小学生でも分かりやすい展示もあり、社会科見学にもよい。勿論、大人でも十分見応えがある。軽くでよいから、戊辰戦争-大正時代の予習はしていったほうがよいだろう。原敬は戊辰戦争で賊軍となった南部藩の出身だが、その差別に対する悔しさをバネに大成し、宰相にまで登りつめたその人生からは色々と学ぶことが多いと感じる。

    東京駅で刺殺された、元首相の原敬、この盛岡が出身だったんですね。こちらが生家ということで、展示物は少ないですが、往時に思いをはせられます。
