Museum / Science Museum

The Kumejima Museum is located in Kadekaru, Kume-jima cho near Municipal Kumejima Hospital. The Museum has displays about Kume-jima’s natural heritage and history - focusing on the four main themes of “Kume-jima’s Natural Heritage,” “How Kumi-jima has Changed Over Time,” “Kume-jima’s Historical Treasures,” and “The Island Way of Life”—so visitors can learn about the Island before they travel round it. A tablet PC digital guide system has been introduced for the permanent exhibitions, so that visitors can listen to explanations of the exhibits in English.

Review of Kumejima Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/03/21 小さな博物館。
島の自然、歴史、文化を紹介する小さな博物館です。
かつての名称は自然文化センター、島内観光出発前に立ち寄るべし。
入館料200円、月曜休館。
Reviewed:2019/02/24 時間があれば立ち寄ってみるのもいい
久米島のことを知るなら、この博物館でじっくり勉強するのもいいが、さっと見るだけだと印象に残るものは少ない。入場料が安いので、時間があれば立ち寄りたい。建物もきれいで、特別展もやっていたが、ほとんど入場者はいなかった。
Reviewed:2019/02/15 久米島観光の出発点にすべし
久米島を巡るなら、先ずはここを訪ねることをお勧めします。
私が行った日は休館日の月曜日(祝日なのに)しまっており、翌日散々あちこち行った後でまた寄った。
ここには各観光スポットのリーフレットが一枚ずつ用意されていて、持ち帰ることができる。
また島の成り立ちや歴史がわかりやすく展示されているので、できれば最初に行ってみてください。

          Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You've arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan's most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
