Review

  • When I visited, the hairy caterpillar suit of armor was out on loan.

    Were not the key holding of this small museum out on loan when I visited, I would rate it more highly. It concentrates on a single family who dominated Akita for centuries; their history is related...
  • Nice small museum

    A small museum in Senshu Park. Entrance fee is only 100 yen. The exhibits focus on the history of the previous Akita rulers. There are some nice displays of armour and clothes. Nothing very special...
  • MUSEUM WORTH VIEWING
