This prefectural museum covers the history and culture of Tokyo's neighboring Kanagawa region from prehistoric times to the present day. Themed exhibition areas are devoted to prehistoric and ancient archeological finds; medieval life under the Kamakura shoganate; and the Koshu-Kaido and Tokaido highways in the early modern era.

The opening and development of Yokohama's port has its own section, illustrated with ukiyoe prints, old photographs and newspapers. There's also a section devoted to the role of traditional culture in modern society.

Freely accessible portions of the museum include a small ground-floor gallery, a library, a coffee shop and the museum gift shop.
