Ghostly ghastly things explained at museum

Date Posted: 2012-07-20

Explanations for why people become scared, why things move without a human touch, and how things can happen that seemingly defy logic are now only a perspective away at the Okinawa Prefectural Museum’s new exhibition.

The exhibition investigates the feeling of human beings being scared by use of physics, science and biology, explaining what factors makes feelings about being frightened. The exhibition, which runs through September 17th, is a combination of show and tell, with answers coming clearly and scientifically.

Visitors learn why the phenomenon called “poltergeist“ that is caused by ghosts “rapping sound”, “will-o'-the-wisp”, “out-of-body experience” happen, and how the feeling “scared” is first born and then remains lodged in our memories. There are also answers to “How can we overcome that feeling in this generation?” and “Exactly what is the feeling of ‘scared’?”

The venue consists of four theme areas, such as “Feeling”, “Learn”, “Inspection” and “Experience”. At first, visitors can feel the “scary” at a haunted house, and learn about what is the feeling about being scared from a scientific angle. Once that is learned, visitors will inspect the phenomenon with knowledge learned, then retry to experience what makes one feeling about being scared at the experience area.

The exhibition is not only for gaining a knowledge about feelings, but also appeals to human senses, and to learn about feelings of “scarey” that is a basic human emotion.
The exhibition is open Sundays through Thursday 9 a.m. ~ 6 p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays 9 a.m. ~ 8 p.m. Last entry is 30 minutes before closing. The entry fee is Adults ¥1,000, college and high school students ¥700, junior and elementary school students ¥600, and over age 3 to under elementary school ¥300.
