If you cannot attend the real matsuri

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

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,...

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

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and also learnt quite a lot! The outside of the building is interesting, red and striking. Inside you will find information regarding the history and also many displays. Probably our favorite "touristy spot" in Aomori.

The exterior of this museum a frisbee toss from Aomori Station is quite striking. They've managed to transform a basic rectangular warehouse sized structure into something that brings to mind a lantern. Inside you will get to learn a bit of the tradition of the colorful illuminated floats that feature in Aomori's big August festival... but more interestingly get to... More

If you are in the area this is certainly worth a visit, just to see & understand a bit more about the traditional Japanese Nebuta festival. This museum is just across from the Aomori train station & has the best of the Nebuta floats from the current year displayed. Two floors of displays & lighting, and then make sure you... More

This is a red building with metal plates as its exterior design just opposite the A factory. The entry fee is 600 yen and you can get a look into the art form of Nebuta festival. Check the timing since there are 2 live shows by the folk artist and its a real pulsating opportunity to see them perform. They... More
