Sayama Municipal Museum
Please note that the Sayama museum is closed on Mondays.
Sayama Municipal Museum is a medium sized museum in Inariyama Park in Sayama. On the upper floor there is a permanent exhibition room. The hall on the first floor and part of the second floor are used for the travelling exhibits. They have several exhibitions during the year. The one in the summer tends to cater to children. They’ve had some really excellent ones in the past, but unfortunately last year’s was a bit of a flop.
Access: The museum is a 3 minute walk from the Inariyama kouen station on the Seibu Ikebukuro Line. You can also get a bus from the west exit of the Seibu Shinjuku Line Sayama City Station to Inariyama Park and walk to the museum.
If you are coming by car; the museum is about fifteen minutes from the Sayama Interchange of the Ken-o expressway or 20 minutes from the Kawagoe Interchange of the Kanetsu expressway. The museum and the restaurant share parking and it is free. Spaces are quite limited in the car park beside the museum, so it is not uncommon to have to wait for a parking space to come free. However, you can also use the park’s car park and walk over.
