It is a very poignant museum and it captures the human element of the story with a blend of personal artifacts to the students stories and photos.
The Himeyuri Peace Museum is a testament to the bravery of schoolchildren dragooned into being water carriers, nurses and helping the injured, then being abandoned by their military.
The museums extensive coverage of the early evolutionary history of the peoples of the region all the way through to the cultural distinctiveness of Ryuku kingdoms in the context of the rest of mainland Japan.
The permanent exhibition of the historical museum exhibits very interesting nature and culture unique to Okinawa, from prehistoric natural environment to modern history.
The museum, park and cliffs are thought provoking and memorable as our most productive and insightful learning experience in Japan.
The modern museum also has an educational "kids corner", a small souvenir store and an observation level (to view the surrounds including the Okinawa Peace Memorial Park and the coastline).
The Habu Museum Park and snake show features viper snakes, which the visitor may experience by touching.
There is a snake museum with live snakes to interact with and also able to see the poisonous snakes behind glass.
The Museum has been completely redone and a must see if you are interested in the Pacific and the variety of cultures connected by voyaging.
Cool museum with a planetarium!
