The Kyoto National Museum offers multilingual audioguides for young people in addition to those for the general public. The Junior Audioguide features two characters, Grandpa Meta (named after the giant Metasequoia redwood tree in the museum garden) and Wakaba-chan ("Little Sprout"). These characters talk lightheartedly about objects on view in the museum. We hope these guides make your next museum visit fun and informative for the whole family.
