Let's take care of your summer vacation homework! Museum to know the earth and meet Kanagawa
Go, see, and feel the world of art
File.3 Kanagawa Prefectural Museum of Life and Earth
4.6 billion years have passed since the birth of the Star of Life and the Earth. A museum where you can easily learn the history and diversity of life along the flow of time. There are about 10,000 full-scale specimens, from giant dinosaurs to meteorites and insects as small as peas. It's fun just to look at the exhibits with a story, but it's so full that it's likely to take a whole day to take a closer look.
Whether you like geology, space, animals, insects, plants, or fish, you have to go. Anyway GO!
A vast universe on the ceiling of the entrance. Below that, you will be greeted by the fossils of life that have made history in various spaces on the earth, including the sky, land and sea.
The first theme on the first floor is "thinking about the earth."
Nobody has seen the moment the earth was born, so it is used to solve the mystery of flying from spaceIt is a stone that comes in. The pieces of information extracted from various stones are connected together to expand the image of creation.
What a romance a scientist is.
In the center is the "Mandravira Meteorite" that fell in Australia. It seems to be 2.5 tons, of course it is real. The ingredient is almost iron, so when you smell the touched hand, it smells like rust.
At the museum, you can touch the exhibits, except those that are in cases or covered with fences. Let's think about the history of the earth and life by mobilizing all the five senses, such as touch and smell, that cannot be transmitted through online images.
This is a globe that displays the epicenter of the earthquake and the volcano with white and red light bulbs, respectively. Light bulbs are scarcely lit on land where ancient civilizations flourished, such as Africa and the Middle East, or areas where Western cities are concentrated. On the contrary, the Japanese archipelago is so full of red and white light bulbs that you can't see the shadow of the island. It may be miraculous that a state-of-the-art city is developing on such an unstable ground.
Whether or not life is born there, the "stratum" is full of stories. I don't know what's difficult, but it's powerful!

The second theme is "thinking about life."
About 2 billion years ago, bacteria, the origin of life, were born on the earth. It seems that more than 1.5 billion years will be required for trilobites to appear from there.
And the familiar "Ammonite" appears 100 millions of years ago. Of course, this strata is also real. When I look for it, it seems that nautilus, bivalves, and ancestors of snails are also hidden.
The accessible parts are polished by everyone's hands and are glossy. It seems to be the trace of a treasure hunt.
The process by which aquatic organisms rise to land and evolve into amphibians and reptiles is also exhibited.
But after all, it is the fossils of large beasts that make me feel excited. Dinosaurs and fellow elephants (such as mammoths) have an overwhelming presence in the large hall.
A complete collection that is irresistible to insect lovers. I think I'm sorry for the idea from a human point of view, but the shape of insects is truly strange and mysterious.
No, of course, all valuable materials of natural history.

Mammals that adapt to various environments will spread their influence on the earth so that dinosaurs will become extinct. Approximately 6500 years ago is "just recently" from the history of the earth.
Here, representative organisms are selected from all the "eyes" of mammals, and displayed as stuffed animals. It's a little strange when you think about the sight of animals that you wouldn't have met in a row (?) That's the difference from the zoo, but what's really great about it is that you can take a close look at it so close to your nose. The sharp teeth of carnivorous animals and the size of brown bears can be felt realistically when viewed closely.
A group of birds are flying over the hall.
If you look closely, the waterfowl is flying properly.
Looking down the hall on the first floor from the escalator that rises to the upper floor, it feels like a bird.
Beside the escalator, points such as "Mammoth eye height" and "Tyrannosaurus eye height" are pointed out, so check this too.
However, please note that the escalator cannot stop at that position.
The first theme on the 3rd floor is " Think about the nature of Kanagawa."
Let's examine from a local perspective how the land on which we live is formed and what flora and fauna and marine life have been nurtured. Kanagawa is located on the point where three of the four plates on which the Japanese archipelago rides hit, so there seems to be diversity in vegetation. Famous for its overwhelming water depth, Sagami Bay is home to a wealth of fish species that overwhelms other regions in Japan.
I was more happy to imagine a sushi restaurant menu than a natural interest.
The final theme is "Thinking about symbiosis with nature-the present and future of humankind."
In the natural world, substances are circulated between the atmosphere, water, and the surface of the earth, and organisms are kept in balance. In recent years, human activity, which is only one of the lives on the earth, has a great influence on this balance.
From here, the data exhibition will be the main focus, not the easy-to-understand samples and models. It may be a little difficult, but I'll stop in a little time and think about the meaning of the data.
The last is "Jumbo Book Exhibition Room".
Twenty-seven books with a 3.2-meter-high three-dimensional encyclopedia full of real specimens. You can change the display of "one book" at a time, so it is possible to develop with a high degree of freedom according to the season and current events. Since the world of science is always full of new discoveries, there is also such a mobile exhibition corner.

If you go downstairs to the second floor, you will find a library with books related to nature.
During the summer vacation period (until August 19, 2018), learning instructors are resident to advise children on free study in the field of science. Once you have decided on your research theme, the museum curator will also assist you in searching and organizing more detailed information, so feel free to consult with us first.
Once you have collected all the interesting reports, let's apply for the Museum Children's Natural Sciences Exhibition !
Special exhibition now being held!
《Let's make a botanical magazine! ～Before and after “Kanagawa Botanical Magazine 2018”》
In 1988, the “Green Family Registry”, which was compiled by the efforts of ordinary people living in Kanagawa prefecture, was first announced in Japan. A special exhibition is being held in line with the announcement of the second revised version following the 2001 revision.
It introduces what has been learned in the latest research, how we have investigated local plants, and efforts to connect the past and future.
