Displaying the journey of Ginowa and its people from the Old Stone Age to the modern times, the Ginowan City Museum is perfect to learn about yet another historic settlement in the city. The museum has a permanent exhibition that includes archaeological findings, history and the folklore of Ginowa. You can find a detailed model of a traditional Okinawan home with household items that would have been used during that time, see historic records and detailed aerial views of the city and learn about the occupation of the people and the tools and technique used by in everyday life.
The “Battle of Okinawa” exhibit forms the heart of the museum and includes information on how the war changed the lives of the people living in the area. The collection of vintage items including old telephones, cash registers and old advertisements spin a whole different world. There are puzzle games for children to reconstruct a broken pot to keep your tiny tot busy for a little bit while the temporary exhibits keep every visit here, rather interesting.
