Mie Prefectural Museum (MieMu) (三重県総合博物館 (MieMu))

4.0

Museum / Science Museum

This museum opened in 2014. To reach it, take a bus for five minutes from the west entrance of Kintetsu, JR, and Ise Railway's Tsu Station and get off at the Sogo Bunka Center Mae stop. It's right there. The museum is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the prefecture. Its main exhibition room depicts Mie's characteristic natural environment around the perimeter of the room, and in the middle presents a comprehensive overview of its people, physical items, and history of cultural exchange. You can also see a fully reconstructed ancient elephant known as the Mie Elephant, consisting of the oldest fossils to be discovered in Mie prefecture. In the back yard there's a reproduction of the Torii Kofun burial mound's stone hut.

特別展:三重の仏像の開催期間に行きました。国宝は一点もなかったのですが、豊富な展示数や快慶の作品もあったりして、見応え十分でした。日本各地に出かけた際に、都道府県や市町村の博物館に足を運びましたが、間違いなく充実している部類に入ると思われます。常設コーナーでは、三重の特性として「東西の交流」、「南北の共存」という二軸の観点から自然や文化の説明がされていて、いい見せ方をされていると感じました。

          Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
