Experience how the people of Osaka lived in the Edo period

The highlight of the museum is a life-sized replica of the streets of Osaka. You can take a walk along a street lined with merchant houses, an assembly hall, a public bathhouse, and more, as though you have traveled back in time to the late Edo period.
