司馬遼太郎の代表作『坂の上の雲』に魅入られ、期待していっただけに、実際に観覧した時の落胆は凄まじかったことを覚えています。松山在住の知人も、「あれは完全に税金の無駄遣いだ」と猛批判するのも分かります。 上空から見ると正三角形になっていて、他にはないポストモダンな建築物であるように見えます。しかし、それゆえに展示に活用できるスペースも限定されてしまい、印象に残ったのは、各スペースを繋ぐための通路が延々と続いていること。建物の活用が物凄く非効率である、という印象が強かったです。 また、『坂の上の雲』という名称を冠していながら、小説の内容に触れられる展示は、ただでさえ少ない展示の中でもさらに限定的。松山の歴史や風土・風俗、松山から輩出された偉人の展示など多面的な展示で、何を焦点に充てた博物館なのか分かりませんでした。 『松山にまつわる諸事を集約した博物館』という位置づけとして来館した方がよさそうです。『坂の上の雲』を強く意識しすぎると、ガッカリすると思います。 If you are a big fan of "Saka no Ue no Kumo" which is one of the representative works of Ryotaro Shiba, you may be very disappointed at the exhibition of this museum.
