Thought we were just going to see the museum that was right next to the jr station and find out about the history of Okayama but happened to be there at the right time and got to see George Lucas...

JR岡山駅西口連絡通路に直結するビル(リットシティビル南棟)4・5階にあります。
昨年のGWに来た際には建物自体は把握していたものの、中に博物館がある事を知らずに通り過ぎていたので、入ってみました。

基本は有料展示が多いのですが、私は無料展示(常設展示)となっている岡山空襲展示室に入りました。
1945年6月29日に行われた岡山空襲に関する内容ですが、空襲直後の町の様子や米国立公文書館の所蔵資料...
Reviewed:2018/09/02 駅チカ美術館
JR岡山駅西口に隣接するビルの四、五階にある。屋根がついた通路で駅とアクセスされた岡山市立の「駅チカ」美術館だ。美術館は郊外の豊かな敷地に庭園も含めてプロデュースされる例が多いが、ここは完全に市中の施設。常設展は岡山の歴史と文化を様々な切り口で紹介、企画展は全国巡回展を誘致している。

Okayama Main Areas

Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan's Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
