The Tsuyama Museum of Science Education is a fun and interesting museum filled with a variety of interesting things, ranging from insects to animals to anatomy. From the outside it appears to be a small museum, but I was surprised at how large it was and how many exhibits they actually have.

The first exhibit has displays of ancient artifacts uncovered from Tsuyama and the surrounding area, including a 20,000 year old whale fossil. Then there are exhibits about the human body. The museum's founder was so dedicated to the museum that he actually donated his own body organs to the museum, so the organs you see on display are his!

There are also exhibits of seashells and butterflies from Japan and around the world. Beyond that, most of the museum is dedicated to wildlife. The number of animals on display is impressive. I think any visitor will be able to see some animals that they have never seen before. I've been to many museums and zoos but still I easily saw many new animals. They claim that the polar bear in the museum is the largest polar bear in the world. I was particularly impressed by the elephant seal.

This is a fun museum that adults and children can enjoy.

The admission is around 700 yen. There is also a combination ticket for this museum and the History and Folk Museum for 1000 yen.

Directions: Located conveniently between the Sightseeing Center and Kakuzan Park entrance.
