Niigata Prefectural Museum of History Reviews
自動車なら長岡インターから近いですが、電車バスなどの公共交通機関だと、長岡駅から１日５本しかバスがなく、アクセスはとにかく不便です。 縄文土器では有名な火焔土器の産地でもあるからか、縄文時代に関する展示は当時の風景復元など秀逸でした。 more »It is close to Nagaoka Interchange by car, but if it is public transportation such as a train bus, there are only five buses a day from Nagaoka Station, and access is inconvenient anyway. Because Jomon pottery is also a famous production area for fire-fire earthenware, the exhibition related to the Jomon period was excellent, such as the restoration of the scenery at that time.
常設展示の内容が充実しています。展示物にある音声解説が良いです。新潟県全体の歴史がよくわかりました。特に縄文時代と雪国、米作にスポットを当てて展示していると感じました。 more »The contents of the permanent exhibition are substantial. The audio commentary in the exhibit is good. I understood the history of the whole of Niigata Prefecture well. In particular, I felt that they were exhibiting a spot on the Jomon period, the snowcountry, and rice works.
This is one of the better natural history museums. You really get a feel for what it was like to live in the area 100 years ago, or 7000 years ago. The star of the show is the Jomon fire pottery, but they have foot impressions made of their kids, like prehistoric baby photos. Also don't miss the tooth modifications. That stuff can't be undone, and it lasts 3000 years (of your teeth do, which they did in this case). To me the fire pottery looks more like water but it's just a decoration.
An interesting history of transport in Niigata. To realize the achievement of Kakuei Tanaka. I'm given to toil until 2 hours from Tokyo has failed. Thanks to the most modern conveniences.
