Admission to this museum is included when you buy a castle ticket. It is fun to peruse the exhibits, but you are at a huge disadvantage if you can't read Japanese. There are very few exhibits with translations. This museum does get huge points for...More

Entry to this museum is included with entry to Matsumoto Castle and is well worth including in a visit. It gives an interesting insight into the history of the town and includes a model of the town as it was historically.

A very interesting museum, set on 2 floors. Entry is included in your castle ticket, and it is situated next to the castle. The exhibits looked very interesting, but unfortunately some only had Japanese information labels. A ood museum all the same.

Included in the admission of the castle this place outlines the history of the town and region. English signage is a bit lacking in some parts. Some good insight into Japanese culture and heritage of the town.

Matsumoto museum ticket is included in the castle admission. The exposition is not very attractive, although some important pieces are displayed here. A handful free bike share system operates in front of it.

The museum has some interesting exhibits but not enough English translations. It comes with the entrance to Matsumoto castle but is only currently worth a short visit.

Admission into the museum is included in the price of admission to Matsumoto Castle, which is just as well as I probably wouldn't pay to visit this museum separately. The building is old and has a feeling of cold-war era about it, though the staff...More

...for this museum, which looks more like a bunch of different old things thrown together at random. We went there because we bought the combo ticket with the castle entrance but do not really recommend doing this. Again, like in many other places in Japan,...More
