Naturalist Center

The Naturalist Center is a place for exploring the mysteries of nature. It is suited to self-guided learning by nature enthusiasts in the 3rd grade and up. This center is divided into sections, each with displayed specimens that are related to the museum’s collection and research fields, such as the earth sciences, life sciences, and anthropology, in addition to books and other materials, and simple instruments and equipment. Visitors are welcome to view the displays and observe and research specimens that are of interest to them using instruments, equipment, and books, as they experience the fun of exploring natural science. In addition, based on the collection and research resources of this museum, selected themes are transformed into mini-exhibitions for the public to enjoy. Every year, award-winning scientific illustrations are exhibited for all to admire.
