~Pond~

Around a pond in the central courtyard in the museum, you can find many unique statues. They are made in the motif of Kappa, a Japanese legendary creature living in water. Kappa is  a symbol of Sakurae.

~Science gallery~

There are many exhibits related on water such as water trumpet, music box and water organ, so children can learn by playing with water. I recommend a scale which you can weigh the amount of water in your body.
