I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the museum, but did not give it 5 stars because a lot of the exhibits were fully in Japanese. So that was a bit of a bummer. The highlight - getting to see the dinosaur fossils (if you're a...More

If you're interested in how the university came to be, the climate that inspired it, and all of the people who had a hand in shaping it, don't miss this little museum. While it's fairly small, it does a good job at giving a broad...More

I was there one morning and the campus was quiet with good ambiance, they have a welcome center in the university. I left before it opened.

Free admission, a lot of things to see and some interactive items too. Not everything is in English though. Worth a look.

The museum is being closed for renewal so can't get inside. But the way to museum is beautiful. It is worth for walking. I like it :)

Must see place if you visit University of Hokkaido. Enjoy walking or jogging inside the campus. Pass the soveniour shop, you may find good stuff there. A small bakery shop sells pestories with reasonal students price.

It won't be a waste of time to visit if your trip to Sapporo is a leisurely that allows you to explore things on your own. There are interesting stuff in here but you may want to skip that room about skin diseases. That was...More

The Hokkaido University Campus is not very large as you would expect in a city center. The University Museum is full of artifacts and specimens of many animals and bugs. Don't expect it to be like a national museum, but for a university museum, it...More
