If you are interested in this period of Japanese history, this is a "must visit". Make your reservation in advance on their website. The multimedia experiences are very well done and the English subtitles were very helpful. If you're passing through the area, there are coin lockers at the museum (but not at the station). Very friendly and accommodating staff.

Pretty nice and well organized museum. A lot of the historical manuscripts are replicas. But the list the original's location. Most of them are in the Osaka Castle Museum and a more obscure one. There is an option when you enter to see the historical movies....please do this 100%. Normally the museum movies are meh and you are lucky if they are in English. This one has eng subs. The experience is somewhat Disneylandesque. They have fans in to emulate gusts of wind, the seats vibrate during battles also the screen wraps the side walls. View from the 5th floor can help you chart out your trip as a lot of key historical sites are visible. Very helpful staff!

I expected more. When we came there were only few examples of armor, and it looked more like cosplay armor than good copy. I’d be happy to change my review if it appears to be lacquered material. For me personally watching Sekigahara festival in October (I think) was more educational. The stuff is super nice and lovely and the observation room is great!

Informative and carefully-laid out museum that gives context, content and detail to the seminal events leading up to and occurring at Sekigahara in 1600. The top floor offers views over the battlefield (and modern town) and points out notable sites, while the rest of the museum offers artefacts, maps, data, explanation and multimedia. Highly recommended.

This is a very well done museum for the battle of sekigahara. The staff are all professional and well informed. I asked a question about the weight of the weapon and the person had the information on hand in a book which was neat they make sure to have the information at the ready. The quality of the tour you are put on was amazing. I enjoyed the movie and opening information display about the battle which was well done and quite entertaining. The observation deck at the top was great and offered views of all the encampments the warlords were at during the battle. Such a nice place and for 500 yen was well worth it.
