湖西線近江今津駅を降りて、竹生島に向かう船が出る今津港に行く途中にあります。
入場無料なので気楽に入れます。琵琶湖周航の歌の歴史、いろいろな歌手によって歌われる歌の視聴コーナーなど意外と充実しており、土産物売り場もあります。船待ち、電車待ちにの間によると便利な場所です。

竹生島よりの帰りに寄りました。港から近江今津駅の中間位の所にありました。
色々な方が歌われる“琵琶湖就航の歌”試聴することができました。

近江今津から海津の桜を見に行く途中で偶然入りました。
入場は無料で、気軽に立ち寄れる資料館です。加藤登紀子、船木一夫等の歌手が周航の歌を聴くことができます。
懐かしさがこみ上げてきます。

          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.
