① Mini exhibition
We will hold a mini exhibition that scientifically explains the world of the animation "Dr. STONE" (1st and 2nd term).
The "Science Craft *" by Senku Ishigami, the main character, and his colleagues in the Kingdom of Science will be explained in an easy-to-understand manner through the specimens and materials of the history of nature and science and technology held by the museum.
* Senku's production of various things based on his own scientific knowledge in order to regain civilization is called "craft" in the work.
Venue: Earth Pavilion 1F Open Space
<Introduction of exhibition (part)>
▼ At the beginning of the animation, we will scientifically explain the process of "fossilization" in relation to the scene where all human beings are exposed to a mysterious ray and "petrify". At the same time, fossils (replicas) of the founder birds will be exhibited.
▼ Scientifically explain the mechanism of record recording and playback in relation to the scene where the record player was crafted to listen to the record made at the bottom of the glass bottle.
At the same time, we will exhibit a German-made SP record player (manual portable gramophone).
② Permanent exhibition character audio guide
The explanations of 10 of the permanent exhibits are recorded with the character voices of Senku Ishigami (CV: Yusuke Kobayashi) and Asagiri Gen (CV: Kengo Kawanishi). You can go around the hall as if you came to play with them.
