To make people experience the history of Ibaraki Prefecture personally, it plans to hold “the Ibaraki History Exploration Exhibition”, “the Hitotsubashi Tokugawa Family Memorial Room Exhibition”, four theme exhibitions and two special exhibitions. The contents of exhibitions are designed exquisitely. Teahouses, lecture halls, large gardens, farm buildings in the Edo period and western-style schoolhouses in the Meiji period are open to tourists. They are the good places to take a rest or walk.
