The inside of the Museum is used as an exhibition room and the characteristics of a Western-style building in Meiji Period can be found throughout the Museum. In addition, the Museum displays rare "Warau-Tatemochi-Jinbutsu-Haniwa (Smiling People of Clay Figures Holding Shields)" that has one and only appearance in the nation.
