Reviewed:2018/02/20 大山の歴史を知る
大山情報館の道路を挟んだ向かいにあります。少し時間があったので見学しました。映像やパンフレットなど、大山の成り立ちや歴史を知る事ができます。ジオラマの模型があり、地形や登山道が俯瞰で見ることができ分かりやすかったです。無料で見学できるので、合間に立ち寄るには丁度いい場所です。
Reviewed:2017/10/09 大山の自然情報などを知ることができます
大山の地質的歴史や動植物、大山寺の歴史など様々な情報を得ることができます。
短い映像による紹介も見ることができます。
説明は日本語だけです。
2階の展望台からは、天気が良ければ、弓ヶ浜や日本海を見ることができます。
Reviewed:2017/09/24 無料で楽しめる博物館、大山登山の前後にも
大山寺参道のすぐ脇、観光案内所の道を挟んで向かいにあります。入って右側は大山の草花・実など、大山登山に役立つ情報が、入って左には小さな博物館のような展示がされています。

          Tottori prefecture is Japanese seasonal diversity at its best: Huge sand dunes cover the north coast, making for the perfect summer beach trip complete with the unexpected addition of camels; November brings the delectable snow crab, while winter around Mount Daisen, the Chugoku region's highest mountain, promises snow sports and magical views.
