Amazing display of floats that go around the town twice a year. Wish we could have come during the festival season - April and October to have an even more interesting experience. Only 5 were on display even though many are carried around during the festival. Big tradition and lot of handwork

I write expensive because it’s double the price of some of the other museums, and half the length, however Japan doesn’t really do traditional tourism yet, so when you take into account that it is one of the only purpose built museums we have been to and it houses the floats to the most important festival for Takayama, then it’s worth it paying the price and contributing to museum. I also can’t think of anywhere else that has such amazingly large and decorative floats, it’s quite a feat to see them and then try and work out how they are moved

One of the places I loved very much in Japan. I wish I could see the festivals with the floats moving in the streets. The floats are beautiful and impressive.

You have two venues in one ticket. The first one is the floats exhibit, extraordinary!! Do not miss it. This century old floats are used in a autumn festival, beautifully crafted. The exhibit is changed every so often; you are given an audio guide. There is a second museum with small scale reproductions of Japanese landmarks; with such painstakingly detail!. On the back is an ancient active shrine.
