Matsuura historical museum

I went to the Matsuura historical museum.

The Matsuura family governed the Hirado Domain as lords for nearly 700 years.

Many historical documents about Matsuura family and Hirado are in the museum.

The musum building used to be the real Matsuura familys house which was made in 1893.

The stairs and gate in the photo has two kinds of steps, the wider one was for horses.

In one corner of the museum, you can try to buckle on armour and a helmet.
