The museum is 5 minutes walk from the JR station, just go straight on the main road and you will find it easily. When we entered the museum, we were amazed by the two floats - neputas that are 3-4 storey tall. After having taken a lot of pictures, we took a lift and go upstairs. Along the spiral path... More

I was here for the festival which I think is the main tourism for this town. The floats come out of here and so you have to come and visit. There is also a restaurant on the top floor and some souvenir and food vendors on the first floor. A definite highlight is to see the float coming out of... More

There is a beautifully designed display of gigantic lanterns and a short film about the festival itself and details of construction give... More

Around the start of August each year there is a festival and this is where the giant lantern displays are made for the big parade. You must g and visit and see the floats a lot of time and effort have gone into making them

Never had we seen such kind of Giant Lantern Display, it was really a different kind of astonished feeling. The design of the whole "museum" is wonderful as we could walk all the way from 4th floor down to ground floor without taking any stairs. Remember to check for the short movie clip show schedule. You can watch it halfway... More
