Special exhibitions here cover a wide range of topics, including film, theater, music, art, and of course literature. The permanent exhibition is much smaller - the main items of interest are some unusual kinetic art pieces by artist Masato Muto, who goes by the name "Muttoni." There is also a library with a children's section and a cafe overlooking the attractive park-like strip of land next to the museum, which features a stream filled with carp.
Note that if you have a Grutto Pass for museum admissions you can use it here only to see the permanent collection.
