Review of Tsuyama Nature & Mystery Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2017/07/11 Full of very unusual exhibits that you would probably not find elsewhere!
Off the beaten track and not quite what you would expect to find in a smaller location like Tsuyama.Parking is available nearby.If you visit end of March/early April you can link it with walk through...
Reviewed:2019/04/25 沢山の剥製を見学できます
剥製の展示がとにかく凄いです。総展示数は約20,000点ということで、量も質も大変充実していました☆実際に生では見れないだろう動物さんも、こうして間近で見ることができて良かったです。それぞれの雰囲気がよく分かりました(^^)

また、ヒトの臓器も展示してありました。流石にこれにはビックリ仰天でした(^^;)館内には、休憩などに座れるスペースやウォーターサーバーがあります。エレベーターはありませんの...
Reviewed:2019/03/24 国立博物館並みの剥製の展示数
ガイドブックなどにはシロクマの剥製が出ているだけで、なんとなく普通という感じですが、中の展示の多さには驚かされます。中でもキンシコウの剥製の展示は、世界でここだけだそうです。

          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.
