This facility stands next to Takuboku Sho Koen (Takuboku Mini Park) along Omori Beach on the Tsugaru Strait. It features a wide array of exhibits on the lives of the warrior Toshizo Hijikata and the poet Takuboku Ishikawa, both of whom were closely related with Hakodate.

Many exhibits on the first floor focus on the life of Toshizo Hijikata, who was the vice-commander of the Shinsengumi, a special police force organized by the Tokugawa shogunate, and who was killed in the Battle of Hakodate, and on activities of people in the last days of shogunate rule.

The second floor, where related important materials are displayed, is also equipped with a realistic, poem-composing robot of Takuboku Ishikawa and a Takuboku theater with a video on his life shown on a wide screen.
