Review of Hourseshoe Crab Museum

Reviewed:2014/03/10 Great place to kill some time
Kabutogani Museum is located right next to the dinosaur park, and is a great spot to visit if you have an hour or so to kill. You will receive a map and a stamp page to collect stamps as you make...
Reviewed:2020/03/14 もっとカブトガニを展示してほしい‼️
建物や展示室の構造は バブルを思わせる 豪華なそれでありました また恐竜の展示が非常に多く恐竜館ではないのかと思うほどです。

肝心のカブトガニについてはきちんと展示はしているのですが その数は非常に少なくもっと置いて欲しいと思います。
目の前には大きな公園がありそこも恐竜一色でした。
少し お金の使い方が間違ってるのではないかと 思いました。

ただ全体としては 面白い博物館でした。
Reviewed:2020/01/10 親子連れにはいいところかも
地方の小さい水族館(博物館、資料館)も、千差万別です。外観などからの想像の通り、しょぼくて遅かれ早かれつぶれそうな施設もあれば、一芸に秀巨大な施設よりも面白いところがあったりします。このカブトガニ博物館は、可も無く不可も無く、期待相応でした。カブトガニの展示内容はこれ以上充実させるのは難しいと思うので、恐竜・化石の展示内容のリニューアル、工夫などをいづれ改修などの機会があるのであれば、期待します...

          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.
