Reviewed:2017/05/05 Very informative and enjoyable
I loved this museum. Ask for an audio guide in English to get the most out of your visit as its free and very informative in understanding Tohokus history.

Reviewed:2020/04/05 東北の文化を知る
東北本線国府多賀城駅の目の前にあり、アクセス抜群です。
東北の歴史をここまで詳しく紹介するところはありません。日本の歴史であまり登場しませんが、縄文時代など古くから文化が育まれ発達してきたことがわかりました。
円筒形の吹き抜けのホールがシンボルです。
今野家住宅が実際の移築なので、一番印象的です。

          Lying along the northeastern coast of Japan, Miyagi prefecture is home to lashings of natural parks, oysters, and hot springs. While the bustling city of Sendai offers some simple city entertainment, it’s the Matsushima islands that deserve the most attention, having boosted the prefecture’s reputation as one of Japan’s most scenic views.
