当館について

As part of Lifelong Learning Center located along the shore of Lake Biwa, the museum completed renovations of the Planetarium in 2012 and the Exhibition Hall in 2013.

The Exhibition Hall, with the digital globe and 20 other themed areas, is filled with interactive displays that move when touched, making science alive and fun.

There are also many nature-related exhibits in the Lake Biwa Theater and the Shiga environment section.

The Planetarium offers state of the art digital presentations with live explanations, and the dome is also used for regular sunspot shows and astronomy classes.
