Joined a local tour to Gunkanjima and gather here to spend around an hour to visit the museum before hopping onto the cruise. The museum is great yet no English for most of the content. Would definitely have a better experience if you get to know about the history before stepping on Gunkanjima island.

Well designed and nicely executed museum. For those who are not totally infatuated with Gunkanjima in the first place, I wonder if it's totally worth the 1800 yen entrance fee. There are some nice interactive displays in several languages, explanations are mostly available in English, only the narrations on the big screen are in Japanese only. Many videos with Interview of former inhabitants available. You could spend a lot of time here if you wanna go all in.

This digital museum is part of the Gunkanjima tour. It provides a good introduction into the history and context of Gunkanjima and perspectives not otherwise appreciated on the ferry. It is well curated and not overwhelming, with visually attractive displays. A good 30-45mins is sufficient for an indepth visit. The VR experience is worth a visit. There is a cafe beside the museum with discounts if the tour pass for Gunkanjima is purchased.

Good extensive details and history of the rise and fall of gunkanjima Island. Though boat landing can't be guaranteed during tricky weather but worth a try. Staff on board are very friendly and caring especially looking after my family

We were told that our prebooked trip to visit this almost mythical existence called the Gunkanjima Island was cancelled. We were devastated. HOWEVER, they said we can visit their Digital Museum for half the price. Since we already traveled all the way we thought there’s nothing to lose. We went and was pleasantly surprised in the creativity and the effort put in to let visitors feel as if we have been there ourselves. The 4/f was the highlight. I recommend going there first and work your way down. It’s the next best thing to actually visiting the island. Actually, it’s worth a visit even if you have physically visited the island. There are places you cannot enter because of safety reasons, but in the digital experience, you can visit and see the prohibited areas.
