Hyogo Prefectural Archaeological Museum is an archaeological museum located in Harima-cho, Kako-gun, Hyogo Prefecture.

Overview

It was established on October 13, 2007 as a base for archeology in Hyogo Prefecture, which has the largest number of archaeological sites in Japan. The museum has a Buried Cultural Property Research Department, which is in charge of excavation research. There is a voluntary organization "Hyogo Archaeological Club" organized by "archaeologists" who conducts research, accumulation of resources such as materials, information, and knowledge, and training of human resources "archaeologists" who support their activities. Located in the area adjacent to the Onaka Ruins, which is designated as a national historic site, it has the role of maintaining and managing this historic site as the Onaka Ruins Park (nicknamed "Harima Onaka Ancient Village"), and has traditionally been used. It is set up and operated as a participatory experience-based museum where visitors can participate and experience, rather than an exhibit-based museum where people can see the exhibits in the museum, and they are constantly conducting hands-on learning. On the basement floor, you can see the space where you can see the storage where various relics are stored, and you can also see the work that you can not usually see such as organizing the relics and metal processing. There is also a cafe in Kobe Fugetsudo in the entrance lobby, which is a place to take a break along with the historic park outside the building. The symbol mark is designed by Takao Yamada. Imagine a hand that stretches up and down, and each hand has the meaning of grasping the future and exploring the past.
