Yaeyama Peace Memorial Museum reviews
Mostly a collection of objects from the ancient era, with a few simple displays about local customs, practices etc. There was a booklet with English translations that had one or two interesting titbits but the museum was organized in a pretty haphazard manner overall. Can skip it unless you have time to kill.
It is a small, low key museum with some interesting items (like water kettle made from a big sea shell). I can sense that the museum is more for locals to connect to their roots than to entertain foreign tourists. You probably only need 30 min to go through all.
