This museum opened in 2002 to enhance public understanding of the nature and history of Kutchan Town and its surrounding areas. The exhibition area is divided into two themes: nature and history. The nature section features Mt. Yotei, the Niseko mountains, and the foothills of those mountains; the history section focuses on history since the prehistoric age, including Hokkaido’s pioneering era, and on people’s lives.
