Great collection of natural history of Nago area. Huge whale skeleton, fine collections of insects, butterflies, flora, wild boars, etc. Interesting displays of agricultural implements, food and other man-made artifacts supplemented with many pictures of local people. Recommended and only 160 yen adult entry fee.
