Omuta Coal Industry and Science Museum (大牟田市石炭産業科学館)

4.0

Museum / Science Museum

Coal helped support the modernization of Japan. And the Miike Coal Mine was the largest such mine in the nation. The Omuta Coal Industry and Science Museum was opened to share the history of the Miike Coal Mine with future generations and contains detailed exhibits which make use photos, videos, and tools actually used in the mine. Particularly noteworthy is the museum’s Dynamic Tunnel. Recreating a mining tunnel 400 meters below the surface, here visitors can view equipment such as a mining cutter and electric mining train to get a feel for the incredible work which once was conducted here. Designed as a facility enjoyable by both adults and children, there is also an area where visitors can play and experiment with various forms of energy.

かつて石炭で栄えた街は、とある場所はゴーストタウンになっていたり、またとある場所は保険金詐欺のために他地域ナンバーのクルマにネコの死骸を投げつけたりするようなことになっていますが、大牟田は違います。大牟田を支えた石炭の歴史がよくわかります。クイズがあって全問正解すると、記念品として絵葉書を2枚もらえますが、そのクイズはけっこう難しく、展示をよく見ないと全問正解できません。記念品が欲しい方は心して見...
