The nebuta museum is a great way to see the mind blowing detail of these floats up close. Considering you'd pay at least twice as much for a museum like this in Australia, we thought that unlike previous reviewers the 600 yen entrance fee was worth it. Take your camera, as you're going to want to take lots of photos!

You can see here the award winning floats from the previous Aomori festival and learn a bit about the culture. The floats are absolutely stunning and the amount of detail that goes into their making is mind-boggling.

It was very crowded the day we visited here. Of course, it was the day before the actual Nebuta festival. We saw some floats here but our biggest treat was the display of floats ready for the parade the next day at the ASPAM area. The gift shop here has a lot of interesting things for sale.

This museum lets you see a few award winning floats up close. They also have a write up on the folk tale behind the float. The banned Star Wars floats were also here so that was a bonus. The staff are helpful and quite willing to help you take photos although it is quite dark in there. Even though I... More

It's really beautiful and the entrance fee of 600 yen is worth it. There are around 4-5 big floats from last years of festivals and great number of smaller ones. You can fully enjoy the museum - even if you don't know a single japanese word, you will understand how the floats are constructed and everything. You can even try... More

Visited on our way to Sapporo, this museum is a 1 minute walk from the JR station. Entrance fee is at 600 yen, and well worth it. Only a few floats are on display, but they were very huge and enough to amaze you. 1-2 hours is enough to visit the place, and you can buy souvenirs upon exiting the... More

We visited the Aomori port for a day during a recent cruise, and I thought that there would not be much to do. However, we were in for a treat. We happened upon the Nebuta Museum, which features several of the recent floats from the annual festival. It was absolutely fantastic. Even without a formal tour, and without Japanese fluency,...

Fantastic floats of the last year. As good as it gets for you can get up close to the floats which during the real festival may not be an option due to the crowds

The distinctive red linear box (Designed by Molo, d/dt, Frank La Riviere Architects) on the waterfront invite you to come and see what the Nebutaya festival is all about. For a modest fee for 600 yen you can explore the history and interact with the display. the distinctive festival floats in paper are so beautiful in person. The simple timber... More
