Learn about the history of Gifu from ancient times to modern day!

Located within Gifu Park, this museum introduces and explains the history of Gifu from primitive times to modern day. Of particular interest are two exhibits created to represent the life of Oda Nobunaga, a famous general who lived during Japan’s Warring States period. One is a large-scale diorama that depicts a birds-eye view of the area surrounding Nobunaga’s home base of Gifu Castle and the Nagara River, and the other is a full-scale recreation of a marketplace that thrived under Nobunaga’s reign.

Within the museum are many fun and educational experiences that visitors are free to enjoy, and whether it’s trying on Warring States period outfits and armor, creating patterns for ancient Jomon pottery or playing games from that period of history, you can learn about the history of the area while still having a fun, engaging time.
