This museum is dedicated to protecting treasures of Ainu culture, the wellspring of all Hokkaido's history and culture, and preserve them for future generations. It offers visitors a chance to learn and experience the Ainu culture of the Saru River basin through four different zones: Ainu Zone (The Ainu Way of Life), Kamuy Zone (Dramas of the Gods), Mosir Zone (Blessings of the Earth), and the Morew Zone (A Tradition of Figurative Art). Apart from the exhibition, the video stage offers audio performances of the Yukar (heroic epic poems).
