You could spend max hour here. Interesting and the floats are amazing but you don't need much longer than an hour. It's in the town so easy to drop in before having a nice walk and shop around town.

This compact exhibition houses a collection of stunning antique floats. While the cultural relevance of the floats is not well explained (at least for people who don't speak / read Japanese) it is a worthwhile experience just to see the size and workmanship involved in...More

Enormous floats, some on wheels, some have to be carried to the respective Shinto Shrines. In spring and autumn (Thanksgiving) the are paraded through beautiful Takayama. Definitely worth seeing - even when "only" displayed in a museum.

Good to see these floats and they are really most impressive, however a few minutes at most is all I needed before wanting to look round the town.

Next best thing to being able to attend the festival that is. In truth the festival is probably so crowded that you can’t see the floats properly so this gives chance to admire the craftsmanship and beauty at fairly close quarters. 4 of Takayama’s 12...More

Very interesting exposition of some floats used during Takayama festivals. Do not bother with audio guide you are provided with your ticket, it's an old style recorder, difficult to listen to and it only occupies your hands, better go and watch a movie in the...More

This seems to be one of the least visited places here, it's a short walk up from the morning market by the river, you walk past one of the float storage halls as you walk up by the river. At the footbridge turn right and...More
