“Great Place to Learn about Okinawa”

Okinawa Prefectural Museum & Art Museum
Ranked #2 of 211 things to do in Naha
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed May 9, 2013

This is a great place to learn about Okinawa and the people of Ryukyu Islands. The displays are done nicely. I see everything that they had to offer, but just did the permanant exhibits. The area was not laid out in an easy way to follow when you are trying to look at the provided English map together with the free use of IPOD Nano headsets.

This Museum covers the loss of life in the Battles of Okinawa. It also have very nice memorial walls with the names of the victims including civilians, Japanese Military and USA Mititary whom lost their lives here in WWII.

We went to visit the special exhibition for the animation originals. In my opinion, the regular exhibition are less interesting unless you are really into art or history.

This nice little art museum is right at the centre of the city and sits among the shopping malls (next to DFS). Worth a 2 hours visit and have a break after all the shopping. You got 20% off on entry fee with a 2 day monorail traveller ticket.
