Tamana City Historical Museum Kokoropia

Museum / Science Museum
This museum looks at Tamana and how it has grown alongside its major river. In addition to a standing exhibition and special exhibitions, the museum holds educational activities such as making ancient magatama stone jewels, and a museum quiz rally (in general, such activities require an advance reservation for a group of 10 or more people). The museum's standing exhibition is divided into three parts - the golden age of the Heki clan (ancient times), the age of overseas trade (medieval times), and the age of cargo vessels and the Takase Okura - and visitors can learn how modern-day Tamana City came to be from a variety of angles. The museum can be identified by its 16 huge display towers on the roof.

    金栗四三の特別展をやっているということで見に行きました。和水町の「金栗四三ミュージアム」や同じ玉名の「大河ドラマ館」に比べて地味な展示でしたが、金栗さんが家族にあてた手紙や絵葉書が大量に展示され(字も上手い)、その人柄をうかがい知ることができたと思います。この他、小さい頃の健康診断や玉名中学の特待生の任命証など貴重な書類も展示されていて、テレビドラマでは真面目ながらもどこか滑稽な金栗さんの本当の...

    博物館の常設展示館は建物改装中でしたが、裏にある小さな建物内で金栗四三展をおこなっていました。来年のNHK大河ドラマ「韋駄天」の主人公ということでの催しでした。本来の常設展示の建物はユニークな建築です。
