The National Museum of Ethnology (Minpaku) is a research center for ethnology and cultural anthropology.

Minpaku Worksheets

Topic Sheets are study material for children.  Each sheet focuses on an ethnological topic such as New Year’s day festivities, coming-of-age rituals in Korea, the Indonesian Wayang Kulit shadow puppet performance, and so on.  They provide quizzes so that children learn about various aspects of the cultural event as they answer the questions to complete the sheet.
