Wakayama City Museum (和歌山市立博物館)

4.0

Museum / Science Museum

"This museum is about five minutes on foot from Wakayamashi Station and about 20 minutes by car from Wakayama Interchange. Next to the Wakayama Civic Library, the museum opened in 1985. Their permanent exhibit ""What the Materials Tell of Wakayama's History"" has a total of six display areas. Five cover the primitive to the modern era, and a sixth Folk Area gives a feel for farm life. Their special and planned exhibits showcase various periods in history and different areas, and they host lectures and educational workshops too. The museum shop sells picture books of past exhibits."

Reviewed:2019/02/03 幻の紀州徳川美術館を求めて
南海電鉄「和歌山市」駅からまっすぐ歩いて10分程のところにあります。外観はいかにも公共施設ですが、一歩中に入ると天井の高い石造りで靴音や声がよく響くコンサートホールのような建物で驚きました。

特別展「お殿様の宝物─南葵文庫と紀州徳川家伝来の美術─」が開催中でした。江戸時代の大名には親藩・譜代・外様の別がありますが、親藩のなかでも尾張・紀州・水戸は将軍を輩出できる別格の扱いとされました。現在、尾張...

和歌山県立近代美術館と隣接しています。ロケーションが良いですが、展示室はそんなに広くありません。ハンズオンは充実している方でしょうか。でも、時々「え!」と思う名品が展示されますので穴場と言えるのでは?和歌山市駅(南海本線)和歌山駅(JR)からバスで。県庁前で降車すればすぐです。駐車場あります。

古来、和歌浦を描いた絵巻や、昔の写真等、期間限定で展示しており、展示内容は少なかったが、興味深かった

          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country’s most delicious ramen noodles.
