“National Museum of Nature and Science”.

The beautiful building,and symbol of the whale.

This time I’d like to introduce “National Museum of Nature and Science”.

The museum is in Ueno-koen Park.
The building is beautiful with a neo-Renaissance style and there is a symbol of the whale.

It was reopened on July 14, 2015!

The earth building had been updated, like about 45 kinds of fossils of the dinosaur, and others.
Fossil is a skeleton, footprint, etc. It is any remains, impression, or trace of a living thing of a former geologic age.
Since the exhibition room of the dinosaurs was opened in 1999, it is now to be renewed first time in 16 years.

Furthermore, there is a herb garden on the roof now and can observe herb(ex:Lavender, Rosemary) while overlooking Asakusa.
The building is full of the highlight and beautifully, too!
