Hida Folk Archaeological Museum 飛騨民族考古館

A museum full of secrets

A museum and former samurai house, the Hida Folk Archaeological Museum houses both a collection of historical and prehistoric objects from the region, as well as secret passages that wouldn't be out of place in a ninja film, all in one visit!

Takayama, a city steeped in history

Famous for its sarubobo, little lucky dolls made of colorful fabrics, Takayama is also famous among history-loving tourists for its many historical sites and monuments, which have earned it the nickname of "little Kyoto".

Located in the small and traditional Kami-Sannomachi area, which has preserved, despite the centuries, the charm of its magnificent wooden houses dating back to the Edo period (1603-1868), the Hida Folk Archaeological Museum is no exception to the rule and is full of secrets and surprises, to the delight of its visitors, young and old.

At the same time a history museum...

Like all archeology museums, the Hida Folk Archaeological Museum houses many prehistoric objects such as stone objects and pottery, some of which date back to the Jomon period (15 000-10 000 BC). It also has the honor of being located in the old house of the doctor of the local daimyo (provincial governors), the Kanamori.
