The Morijuku Art Museum has an exhibition that features a local painter's work about Tsuwano. However, the building itself is also worth taking some time to see since it is one of the only traditional mansions that is open to the pubic in this castle town. Within this mansion, you can enjoy an authentic mansion type atmosphere, without intruding on someone's home.
