I would have never expected such a modern building in this old historical city. The park and the building complex are new built and the architecture is really amazing. But still it is fitting in the wide landscape with the mountains in the background.
Inside the museum everything is modern as well. There are short English descriptions to every exhibition piece and you can also get an English audio guide.
I learnt so much about the history of Shimane and Izumo, and especially about the old myths and stories. Most of the Japanese gods came from Izumo, so here you can learn why and what kind of things happened. They even have a small cinema inside the museum, where you can watch movies about the history of Izumo.
The staff is really friendly and helpful and tries to explain everything to you or even provided a free tour through the museum.
