I can’t recommend this enough! It was $12 for two adults, but wow those floats are incredible! Apparently the actual festival is in august, but I recommend going to this museum as well. You can learn about how they are made and the stories behind the floats. Some information in English.

Fascinating exhibition, featuring the history of the Nebuta festival. Each year, 22 floats, measuring up to 7m x 6m x 5m (tall), are made at a cost of up to US$50,000, and paraded during the festival in the first week of August. Then many are destroyed, but 4 are kept & exhibited in this museum. Go here & be inspired by the creativity and the history! Also stop by next door, at the A-Factory & grab the coffee & apple pies at Skip Egg cafe!

This was educational and interactive. There is a lot of history of the festival explained and the beautiful must see floats. The unexpected part for me was the music and dance show where you can join in playing the drums and other instruments, or dance. I loved this and now take family and friends there to see the show.

This museum is definitely worth a stop. The building itself is unusually designed so that starts things off on a positive note. Once inside you'll see Nebuta in various station of construction and many that are completed. I'm pretty sure it changes from year to year with new Nebuta displayed.
Hard to stop taking pictures. The color and the designs are just amazing!

This museum is about 5 minute's walk from Aomori station and the red metal building is easily recognizable. Admission tickets can be bought on the 1st floor where the entrance is. Paid for a combination ticket which covers this place and Hakkodamaru Ship for JPY600. The first thing we did was take funny photos with the Haneto dancers' photo prop on this floor!
The experience begins with a walk through a red corridor lined with photos of the Nebutan Matsuri to the beats of Taiko drums and festival voices. Just before you enter the section which waslined with gold fish lanterns overhead, there is an interactive draw pad where u can have fun designing your own warrior (select the brow, nose, lips and colour, etc) and it will be displayed in the white warrior head above.
Next you will be wowed by the fantastic exhibits of actual floats from past festivals. We walked around and admired the beauty and craftmanship of these floats. You can witness the float construction works being carried out in a workroom at the end of this exhibit area. There is a magnificent and ferocious looking warrior just outside this workroom! Warrior masks lined the walls in this exhibit area.
As you exit the musuem, there is a musuem shop selling local souvenirs and food.
This place is well worth a visit! Don't miss it!

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 also give the visitors an opportunity to play the massive drum and hand cymbals which along with the flute forms the foundation of the dance art form of Nebuta. There is a souvenir store and a restaurant and different Nebuta floats (5 as of Feb 15) which participated in the last festival is displayed for the visitors.

First of all, the museum costs ¥600 for adults. Inside, they have 2 floors, the top floor (where you start, approximately 2-3 rooms) showing you some cool stuff about the making of the Nebuta floats, which are wire-frame, wood, and paper. You can play with the face on the computer, and, if you speak English, that's about it for you on the second floor. The bottom floor has about ~5-6 previous floats, and a couple smaller/partially done floats (for you to see the inside of).
That's all they have, and I think I was in and out in about 20 minutes. If you're very curious about the Neputa festival, this might be a good choice for you, but otherwise, I'd avoid it. Hirosaki (about 45 by JR train) has their own "Nebuta-mura" which you could also check out.

Located just a few minutes walk from Aomori Station, this attraction showcases Aomori's famous summer festival, the Nebuta Matsuri. You can see the real floats used in previous year's festivals and they are impressive in both scale and design! Other activities include an interactive display of the history of the festival--the old black and white newsreels give you a glimpse into Japanese daily life as well. You can try on hats from the festival, bang some drums, design your own Nebuta on a computer and see the design lit up in a 3D image… plenty for people of all ages. If you're going through Aomori Station, there is no excuse not to visit this great museum!

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 and wire sub frame construction supports the delicate paper painted skins depicting the historical and mythical characters. They also invite you to participate in dancing and drum play- we were filmed by some TV show so look out for two unco-ordinated people on some travel show.
The gift shop have some yummy apple sweets packaged as cute koi fish.
A highlight of Aomori

A wonderful time spent learning about how everything is constructed and finished. To see the size of some of the floats is amazing.
