Opened in 1994, this museum is devoted to archaeology. Here you can find out how archaeologists use the latest scientific methods and technology to restore and preserve burial mounds, building sites and ancient artifacts. You can learn all about the giant keyhole shaped burial mounds built at various sites throughout Japan during the Kofun Period (4th-6th century A.D.) or discover how the Japanese people imported knowledge and culture from the Asian continent during both the Kofun and the Asuka Periods (4th-7th century A.D). An English auto-guide system and catalog are available. Many foreign visitors come especially to view the architecture of the building designed by Tadao Ando.
