The Okinawa Prefectural Museum and Art Museum is a popular spot where visitors can enjoy Okinawan nature, history, culture, and art all at the same time. It's fondly known as OkiMu, which is an abbreviation of "Okinawa" and "museum."
In the museum, nature native to Okinawa, climate and other natural features, history, and culture are introduced through authentic documents and models as well as dynamic videos. There are also specialized themed displays in five different divisions: nature, archeology, arts and crafts, history, and folk customs.
The art museum consists mainly of modern works of art by Okinawan artists and artists who have a connection to Okinawa, but other works of art originating elsewhere in Japan and other countries are also on display. For permanent displays, there are pamphlets with explanations written in five different languages, including Japanese, English, Chinese, Korean, and Spanish. Audio guides in the aforementioned languages are also available for free rental, so tourists can easily enjoy the exhibitions.
Additionally, the museum shop is well-equipped for choosing souvenirs, and there is a cafe where visitors can taste Okinawan soul food as well as dishes that use seasonal island vegetables, so make sure not to miss out.
