3.5

Museum / Science Museum

A natural history museum in Minato Town, Gamagori City, Aichi Prefecture. With a focus on the sea as the source of life, visitors can learn about the history of the earth and living things through exhibits such as real meteorites and fossils. Among the exhibits tracing the evolution of ancient creatures from their birth out of the sea are lots of hands on displays including the world’s first digital globe where people can learn and have fun. The museum theater which shows short films is also popular. The full-body whale skeletal fossil in the first floor entrance was recognized as a new species in 2016.

Review of Gamagori Museum of Earth

蒲郡駅から竹島水族館に歩いていく途中に見かけ、帰りに入ってみることに。
1階と2階、3階の一部は無料エリアで、3階に着いてから有料エリアに入るかどうか検討してよいと入口の窓口で説明を受けました。

地球誕生のことや地層のこと、クジラの化石などが展示してありました。インパクトのあるものは少なく、小学校の社会科見学で来そうだな-と。クジラのヒゲの違いが分かる方にはたまらないのかもしれません。
無料なの...

子供と一緒に訪れました。ワクワク。大人までワクワクします。とても広くて展示の仕方も上手で楽しかったです。
Reviewed:2018/12/21 惜しむらくは
惜しむらくは中身の充実でしょうか。広々としたスペースがあるので子どもを遊ばせる、地層に興味を持たせるにはよいかもしれません。

          Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
