This place was interesting, my partner and I got to see the omikoshi (festival floats), a short video showing the festival, and then we saw a 3D video about the festivals in Chichibu. However it's all in Japanese. There is one section of the museum on the second floor that explains the Chichibu night festival in English. It's really interesting. I'd say go, why not?

500 yen per person. There is a gift shop, and a stage where I assume there are musical performances? I didn't get to see that though.

One of my favorite museums I've ever visited. Beautiful float exhibits, a cool 3D mini documentary, mikoshi, festival wear, etc. Well worth a visit.

埼玉県民手帳があれば50円引きで入れます♪3Dシアターやプロジェクションマッピングもあり、なかなか見ごたえありました。
プロジェクションマッピングは、もうちょっと神輿がライトアップされたらよかったかな……。ただ、龍神様が現れる所は感動!
3Dシアターでは秩父夜祭りだけでなく、色々な地元の祭りが紹介されてて楽しかったです。
