五個荘にある巨大な施設。近江商人とはといったテーマで解説する総合展示。
ただ、解説は最大公約数的なもの。ここじゃないと得られない情報という感じはしないような気がしました。
Reviewed:2019/04/03 五箇荘の近江商人屋敷とセットで見学
近江商人の古い屋敷が残る、五箇荘の金堂地区。公開されている近江商人屋敷4つと、こちらの博物館に入館できる共通券が1000円で、販売されています。広い駐車場もあります。近江商人の成り立ちや歴史などが、資料や映像で紹介されています。近江商人の暮らしや商売は、今の時代に通じるものが多く、その生活スタイルはとても勉強になります。17時まで開館しています。

          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.
