Review of Mikawa Glass Museum

Reviewed:2019/11/28 入館料が割に合わない
一人あたり720円払ってこれだけ?正直300円が妥当かと…。建物自体がとても小さい上、一階は受付で三階は何故か銃の展示で二階しか見るところがない。万華鏡は素敵でしたが、ガッカリでした。

巨大万華鏡もすごいけど、館内にある小さな万華鏡のどれもが美しい。万華鏡以外にもガラス工芸がすばらしい。優雅な感じをうける。

住宅街の、えっ、こんなとこに!というところにある美術館。

建物の外観からは(失礼ながら)あまり期待はできなかったのですが、中に入ってみると館長さんのなみなみならぬ熱意に圧倒されます。

圧巻はやはり巨大万華鏡「スフィア」。

万華鏡の中に入れたらどんなに素敵だろう、との思いから作られたそうです。

当初は塔型の万華鏡も考えたものの、長時間上を見上げるのは辛いだろうとの思いから、あえてホコリや汚れ...

          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.
