Hida Space Science Museum KamiokaLab

ひだ宇宙科学館 カミオカラボ

Hida Space Science Museum KamiokaLab is a museum in central Kamioka town that introduces visitors to the science of neutrinos and the research activity hosted at the separate Super-Kamiokande observatory, which is located deep in the mountains of northern Kamioka.

The museum is free to visit and comes with a series of engaging, interactive activities and video installations. Bilingual staff and multilingual brochures help make this not just an accessible attraction but also a must-visit destination for fans of science, space and exciting discoveries.

The museum offers insights into neutrino research and experiments that hope to further our understanding of the nature of elementary particles and the universe — a scientific program that attracted a Nobel Prize in Physics in 2015.
