Very unfriendly granny staff. She was speaking rudely. I can't believe here is Japan. Very disappointed.

More like a architectural museum than a banking museum. There is the preservation of the old teller counter and the safe, but other items involve the architect's style and works. Still interesting though, especially with free entry,

A decent place to visit. There’s no entrance fee. There’s only a few section of exhibition area however the building itself is historical and it’s really amazing how they managed to maintained almost all of the original parts of the building that was built centuries ago.

Old bank in 唐津, which is interesting to visit and understand the history of the town and architecture of the time.
