Free admission, a lot of things to see and some interactive items too. Not everything is in English though. Worth a look.

The museum is being closed for renewal so can't get inside. But the way to museum is beautiful. It is worth for walking. I like it :)

The Hokkaido University Campus is not very large as you would expect in a city center. The University Museum is full of artifacts and specimens of many animals and bugs. Don't expect it to be like a national museum, but for a university museum, it...More
