The Kagawa Museum is a prefectural museum in Takamatsu, Japan, dedicated to the history and art of Kagawa Prefecture. The museum opened in 2008, consolidating the three institutions of the Kagawa Prefectural Cultural Hall (opened 1966); Seto Inland Sea Folk History Museum (opened 1973) ; and Kagawa History Museum (opened 1999); the first two institutions now operate as annexes of The Kagawa Museum.

Kagawa Museum Reviews
Kagawa features exhibits of modern artwork from around the world, so, be prepared to see a little of this and a little of that from other cultures. more »
I was totally spoilt when I visited the Kahala Museum, the most amazing exhibition of illustrated books from the the Edo period on plants, fishes and birds. You do not have to be a fan of those areas.... more »
Nice little museum with a decent collection of artifacts. However, no translation available ; everything is in Japanese. No pictures allowed except for small sample of modern reconstructions.
Comprehensive and interesting timeline of Japanese history, along with many cool artifacts. Also some nice art available for viewing. A pretty cheap admission, and a decent walk from the nearest station.
