We have been to this somewhat run-down museum several times. You never know what might be there. The museum often has special exhibits, for which one must pay an entry fee. But for other exhibits, which appear to be more local or community based, there...More

This museum is advertised as being free except for temporary exhibitions. The problem was that everything was temporary exhibitions. We ended up paying 500yen for an exhibition of Japanese Paintings (there was a Salvador Dali exhibition at the time, for 3 times that price). The...More
