I went there for the first time in a few years. The exhibits have changed in many ways, and the only thing I missed was the fact that I couldn't see the fish whose eyes had degenerated. But I learned a lot ~ The map on the floor at the entrance The kids seemed to like it! The building itself looks like it could be a memorial building ~. Free is great!

I came here with my kids to cool off a bit. Anyone can enter the facility free of charge. There was a simple stamp rally, which the children enjoyed. The stone exhibit on the first floor can be touched. It says that it was used for the Great Buddha in Nara, so I learned something about it. There is also a stuffed Asian black bear. The children were intrigued because they could see the white area from below. There are one Western-style restroom for women and several Japanese-style restrooms. Although it is old, it was well cleaned. I stayed there for about 30 minutes.

It was a facility that you could enter for free. Although the facility is old, it seems to be well maintained and clean. The image is of a museum from the Showa era, and the exhibits range from stuffed animals to specialized items. It takes a surprisingly long time to look around carefully. Many people pass by it, but I think it's worth a visit at least once.

I think it is quite difficult to experience the dynamism of the earth. Volcanoes, as they are often referred to, have an immediate feel, and you cannot feel the timescale. In that respect, I think Akiyoshidai, with its easy-to-understand limestone topography, is a valuable place where you can experience the dynamism of time and space. This science museum focuses on geology, but also exhibits the results of humanities geography and archaeology, from the perspective of biological evolution in the unique environment of caves and the relationship between humans and the terrain. I think there are many schools where earth science is not even an option, but recently, thanks to the influence of Tamori-san, there are a lot of interesting earth science books such as Bluebacks, so I think you'll really enjoy it if you read a few books before visiting. , this museum. I didn't have much time so I could only take a quick look at it, but it's best to take your time and walk around the area, including the walking paths.

The view from the museum is also very beautiful. The museum exhibits exhibits such as ores, flora, fauna, and geological formations (panel displays, stuffed animals, actual minerals, history, etc.), and there are natural science materials and humanities materials related to Akiyoshidai. ing. Admission to the museum itself is free, and it's only a few minutes walk from the Mine Observation Deck, so you can easily go there. Although it is not popular, I believe that this kind of educational perspective is essential in order to learn more deeply about the nature of Akiyoshidai and enjoy it. This is one of the facilities you should definitely visit (ーーー)
