Located in Daisen Park, in Sakai City, the Sakai City Museum has an interesting collection of items related primarily related to the following:
Emperor Nintoku Tumulus (which is across the street)
Industry and Culture in Sakai
History of Sakai
This can be combined with a visit to the tomb and a bicycle museum, which is also in the park.
The tomb is run and maintained by the Imperial Household Agency - which means you cannot go in. A peek from outside the moat is the extent of a visit.
