Fujio ” introduces a plesiosaur named Piisuke, modeled after the fossil from Iwaki.Many whale, ammonite, and other fossils excavated in the city are also on exhibit.
In 1856, a coalfield was discovered in Iwaki.Large-scale coal mine development was subsequently carried out in neighboring areas until 1976, contributing significantly to Japan’s energy industry. An exhibit reproduces the equipment and mine interior of that time.
