Review of Otsu City Museum of History

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/02/26 戦国時代の大津の歴史が興味深い
戦国時代の大津の歴史が興味深いです。今年の大河ドラマは明智光秀なので、好きな人は明智光秀の書状の展示などもあったので楽しめると思います。
Reviewed:2019/11/06 大津の歴史
大津の歴史が解る博物館です。三井寺の方に有り、博物館からの琵琶湖の眺めも綺麗です。来年の大河ドラマは明智光秀ですが、坂本城関係の物やら膳所焼等興味のあり方には面白いと思います。
Reviewed:2019/09/25 園城寺の側
津の歴史がよくわかります。近江八景や350年前の大津の復元模型などをはじめ、各時代の発掘物の文書、写真、遺物等の様々な展示があります。

          Visitors to Shiga prefecture are almost always hopping east across the prefectural border from Kyoto, and they are almost certainly Lake Biwa-bound. Covering an area of 670 square kilometers, Lake Biwa makes up the bulk of Shiga prefecture, with beautiful lakeside paths that offer myriad walking and cycling opportunities, connecting a string of museums, shrines, and picturesque views that finally lead you to Hikone Castle on the eastern side of the lake.
