Iwami Ginzan Silver Mine Museum (Former Magistrate’s Office)


Museum with precious artefacts illustrating life and work at Iwami Ginzan


The place was once the estate of Tokugawa Shogunate mine administrators. This museum houses many historical materials ranging from the valuable materials of Iwami Ginzan Silver Mine, mining and smelting tools which were actually used in the mine, materials representing life and worship of samurai and Tokugawa Shogunate mine administrators, to various ores from various mines across Japan. The current building was built in 1902 as the Nima District Office, but remains being used as a museum today.
