Ako City Museum of History
This museum was established in 1989 in order to contribute to the academic and cultural development of the area, through the collection, preservation and research into exhibits of local historical resources. The museum was given a nickname, “The place for salt and warriors,” as it is the hub for the promotion of the two main features of Ako City: Ako-gishi warriors and salt. The exhibits are organized around four main themes: salt-making history, the castle and its town, warriors, and the former water supply and sewage systems.
