Visit Okinawa Prefectural Museum and Art Museum to fully grasp the process of development of Okinawan art, culture, and folk life. Opened in 2007, the museum building, designed as a gusuku (castle), features a construction of local Okinawan limestone. A common lobby serves as entrance to both the art museum and history/natural history museum; you can purchase admission to one or the other, or both. Inspect reproductions of two traditional-style Okinawan buildings, learn about the geological origins of the Ryukyu archipelago, and examine numerous artifacts, works of art, and native musical instruments. Impassioned researchers can visit the extensive library to delve deeper into Okinawan history and heritage.

Okinawa Prefectural Museum and Art Museum Reviews
沖縄県の文化、史跡、博物に関する重み感じる事が出来る場所。それぞれの展示物に重みがあり、深い。関心させられる。一見の価値があるが、2、3日でも見られない。さすがに文化を大切にする。沖縄県の博物館だ。 more »A place where you can feel the weight of Okinawa Prefecture's culture, historic sites, and natural objects. Each exhibit has a weight and is deep. It is made to be interested. It's worth a look, but it's not seen for a few days. We really value culture. It's a museum in Okinawa Prefecture.
我們挑了個半天時間來參觀沖繩的美術館，一進館就有一個大大的木船裝置，當天剛好有宮崎駿展，立馬買票進去參觀，這裡很適合小朋友，有機會再來二沖... more »We picked up a half-day to get a beautiful room, and in one go there was a big wooden boat, and when the day was good with the Saki exhibition, the tickets went to the show, and here it was very good for the children, there would be another two...
Stunning design from the outside and when walk into the inner walk, you will see a beautiful traditional Okinawa house before entering the building. This is my favorite design cue of the museum. The history part of the museum is very well presented and quite enjoyable to walk. However, the art part of the museum is although interesting but doesn't feel particularly special. The 'Planned Exhibitions' changes for time to time, so it's hard to review but I'm sure they gotta be something special. The public park behind the museum (Shintoshin park) is also very nice and filled with lots of lively activities, especially in the weekend.
Interesting museum about Okinawa history and culture. It's a must visit if you want to understand more about Okinawa's past and the people living there. All exhibits are in English. Good to spend a few hours. They also have special art exhibitions that rotate continuously.
