  • This is a really great natural history museum. It is not a big museum but the collection is well displayed and presents a comprehensive overview of geology, age of dinosaurs, regional natural history....  more »
  • I have family who live in the area, and they are very familiar with the Gunma Natural Museum, so it was a perfect outing for a rainy day. The museum is beautifully arranged and full of specimens...  more »
  • This is a really nice Natural History Museum, but it's a ways from Tokyo (a long train ride, and an equally long car ride on top of that...). It's definately worth the trip if you're in the vicinity!
  • All information at each exhibit is in Japanese, except the name of the exhibit which is also written in English. The exhibits are very visual so you can get by without reading Japanese. However, the information provided is very interesting and educational. Same with the interactive media - Japanese only. I can read Japanese so I didn't ask, but it maybe worth asking at the reception if they have an English brochure. Parking is a disaster on a busy day. No parking attendents directing the flow. Elevator is concealed - you have to ask to be brought to it from the lower floor. Its visible and accessible from the upper floor. Good value for money. Kids are free in. The kids enjoyed it and learned a lot. Good rainy day location. It gets excellent reviews, but we've been to many museums in Japan and I found it to be just average.
