Traditional old houses were moved from their original sites to the museum grounds, and have been conserved here. They were originally built in a natural environment at the foot of Mt. Hakusan, one of Japan’s few heavy snowfall area. Information and exhibitions about history, folk culture and religion are displayed here. Important tangible folk-cultural properties, dezukuri* houses and living implements are collected, and a house called the “old Kogura house” is designated an important cultural property. Five other houses which are designated by the prefecture and the city have been preserved here.

*Dezukuri is a culture where a farmer lives in a house in the mountains to cultivate fields during the warmer months, and returns to the village during the winter months.
