The Natural History Museum and Institute, Chiba, is a facility in Chiba Prefecture that opened in 1989. The Museum’s mission is to provide high-quality public education regarding Chiba’s natural and human history.

The permanent exhibition halls consist of three displays; Natural History of The Boso Peninsula, Human History of The Boso Peninsula, and Interaction Between Nature And Human.
Ecology Park is an observation field, located adjacent to the main building. Within approximately 6.6 hectares (16.3 acres) of the grounds, different types of forest and grassland vegetation found on the Boso Peninsula have been reconstructed.
