This museum was opened in 2011 and shows history of the summer festival, Aomori Nebuta Matsuri, displaying art works of illuminated floats used in the past. In the atrium are several life-size floats with very impressive, larger-than-life images. The words "Wa Rasse" are coined to mean harmony ('wa') with 'rasse', the spirited shout in the festival.

This is a very cool museum. Both the outside of the museum with its unique architecture and the inside with all the wonderful Nebuta displays. I've posted some pictures but didn't include all of the floats so as to not ruin the experience. It's worth going to see these displays in three dimensions as they really are quite beautiful and detailed.

Wonderful experience, highly recommended if you find yourself in this area. The "movie" was rather dull, just the rereading of the text by each piece of art. The creations themselves are glorious depictions of Japanese myths and legends.

Good for families.

I loved it. Great overview of the Nebuto celebrations if you don't get to see the real thing and a good way to learn more about it if you did see it. Information, displays, and participatory demonstrations. We only some English but we understood a lot.

If you’re inAomori in summer you must come and see the Aomori Nebuta Matsuri Festival. As we came in December (Winter), this museum is the closest thing you get to see what the festival is all about. Amazing details on all the lanterns from all the artist. Come and see the history and experience it first hand playing the drums at the shows at allocated times during the day.

This little museum was nice! But I give it a 4 star because it was so small. Entry fee was 600 yen for adults and there’s like 3 rooms and that’s about it. And a small gift shop.
