  • It's only 100 yen to enter. So that's cool. There are a lot of bugs, birds and other taxidermied animals. And rocks. All native to Fukui. Unless you want to sit and examine every leaf they have displayed here, you'll get through it all quickly. Nice view on observation deck. There's other things to visit in direct vicinity.
  • This is a great little museum with lots of information about the natural history of Fukui city. It has lots of info on the local wildlife and geology. There are many stuffed animals and some great dioramas. This is great for anyone interested in local history. There is also room for rotating special events, and the rooftop has a large telescope, plus a great mountaintop panoramic view of the city. And the admission fee is only 100 yen!
