If you're here during the festival no need to buy reserved tickets. Wasted $60 per person from the ship. It's $30 if you have a friend in Japan get them from a Lawson store. But there is plenty of curb space on the first day for free.

A great display and the workmanship that goes into creating these festival floats is astonishing! Very easy to get around and located right opposite the local station.

It is only 2 minutes walk from Aomori Station. 5 floats from most recent Nebuta Festival are displayed here. Around the foyer also lots of masks, smaller size floats on display. Very beautiful. We really enjoy the Warasse.

Its really close to aomori train station. Nice outer decor, couple of interesting displays and some really impressive models. Not a bad place to visit, introduction to the history of Nebuta festival.

This is an unusual and very informative museum showcasing floats from the Nebuta Festival. It also shows how the floats re made. We found this museum to be very interesting and they have an excellent gift shop and restaurant.

This is a modern museum that shows floats and Nebuta festival. The actual festival celebrates in summer, but we can see some floats and v.d.o. in this museum. There are also activities such as dancing, drum playing and float making that everyone can join.
