Review of The Kyoto University Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2016/11/11 Childrens activities on Weekends.
A charming small museum, free entry. Displays include Natural Science, Technology and Archeology. Only brief English descriptions so some information is lost if you dont read Japanese. Free...

京都国立総合博物館は、入場料400円です。とても凝った博物館です。京都大学が始まって以来100年以上にわたって収集してきた貴重な学術標本資料260万点が収蔵されています。
Reviewed:2019/05/19 大学の博物館にしてはトップクラスです
仙洞御所見学後、重森三玲庭園美術館の予約時間まであきがあり、そばのこの博物館に立ち寄りました。入園料400円が70歳以上は無料です。
アカデミックなところはありますが、ビデオのカラコルム登頂はメチャ面白かったです。蛇足ですがこの前の京大カフェテリアは安いですよ。

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
