Kanagawa Prefectural Museum of Cultural History

At the Kanagawa Prefectural Museum of Cultural History, there are many displays that clearly show the charm of Kanagawa Prefecture's history. Ever since the museum's opening in 1995, many have continued to love the only museum that truly showcases the culture and history of Kanagawa. The building consists of the baroque-styled building, which was priorly used as the Yokohama Specie Bank, and the additional hall, which was built in 1967. The baroque-style building has been designated as an Important Cultural Property. Inside, there are 5 themes, "People who lived in Sagami", "Urban Kamakura and the people of the Medieval Ages", "The culture of the people and streets of the recent times", "Yokohama Port and Modernization", and "Present Kanagawa and the Traditional Culture". Occasional workshops and events for kids are offered.
