何度も訪れても飽きない常設型の瓦展示でした。
平成30年11月4日(土)には高円宮妃久子さまが11月3日に行われた「地域伝統芸能による豊かなまちづくり大会あいち・なごや・日本の祭りinあいち・なごや2018」が開催された後に立ち寄られた美術館です。とても癒される時間になります。美術館前の森前公園も瓦オブジェでとても楽しかったです。
Reviewed:2018/11/25 見ごたえある瓦
瓦で造られた造形美術がガラスケースに入って並んでいました。
普段屋根の上についているものですが、かなり細かな模様などに驚きます。
瓦の歴史や文化なども勉強できます。
Reviewed:2017/08/31 建物の外にも瓦がいろいろある
瓦の産地高浜にある瓦に特化した美術館です。無料展示スペースやミュージアムショップもありますが、特別展示は有料です。周りには散策によい公園もあり、瓦のシャチホコやオブジェもあり瓦の街の雰囲気が出ています。

          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.
