Could have been so much better

I came with a study-buddy for a special Nichiren exhibition that displayed many excellent Buddhist artworks. What a pity that the arrangement was poor and without a concept, the items just put into the showcases without a story, a narrative...
This is probably the fault of the organizer and not of the museum and it must be said that the location is idillic with a park near the river.

Potentially very interesting

I visited this museum because of the Bizen pottery collection. I enjoyed seeing this, and also the sword collection, as I hadn't been aware that Okayama was also famous for swords. It was a bit frustrating that so little information in the museum was in English. I used Google Translate to read the labels, which had one attendant concerned that I was taking photos or videos (both forbidden), until she saw that I was trying to read the labels. One exhibit allows you to pick up a replica sword to understand how heavy these were, and that was fun.

Entry to this museum is a small extra amount on top of entry to Korakuen which is right next door so, despite the frustrations, it was worthwhile.

A bit too small and somewhat boring

Considering it was a prefectural museum, it was a small in size and did not offer a lot exhibition. It was kind of boring.

I would recommend to skip this.

Amazingly pitiful collection for a city of this size.

Very small overpriced museum. The only things of interest when we were there were some beautiful swords, including a 13kg dai katana.
