This museum stores and exhibits a range of items, focusing mainly on everyday tools used by the citizens of Nirasaki in the Meiji to Showa periods, and archaeological artifacts excavated from sites in the city. Excavated articles from the Paleolithic age through to the early modern period are displayed systematically, allowing visitors to see many examples of pottery, dogu (clay figurines), stone tools, ceramic ware, and many other items. A waterwheel from the Meiji period and a treasury storehouse that belonged to a wealthy merchant from Nirasaki-shuku have also been brought in and are exhibited next to the museum.
