A history of a town that prospered due to marine transportation and the railroad industry

The museum was established to commemorate the 100th anniversary of putting a town administration into effect.
It mainly collects materials that are cultural assets connected to the town and exhibits them to the public.
The site of the museum and some of the art and handicrafts were donated by the Asami family, who were retainers of the feudal lord of the former Tadotsu Domain.
