This museum opened in the Yamanote area of the Nishi Ward of Sapporo in April 2004. It has since worked to make its exhibits attractive by enriching its holdings under the themes of maps and ores through the collection of mining materials, ores, rocks, and minerals in Hokkaido and elsewhere, and through the donation of ores from former mines. It also collects and displays various kinds of maps, map information, and surveying instruments, while selling publications of related research institutes. It supports educational activities, exchanges, and information-sharing of the local community and various institutions, all while continuing museum activities, including field trips and consultation services about stones, to raise public awareness of geology and the environment. The museum staff will continue to work with the local community, located in this beautiful area along the Kotoni-Hassamu River, and we look forward to your visit.
