    The coastal town of Akkeshi is still to this day renowned for seafood such as oysters, pacific saury, salmon, and trout. However, Akkeshi was historically a prosperous site for herring and salmon fishery since the Edo period (1603-1868). The town grew and developed alongside the ocean. This hall was built to commemorate the 190th anniversary of the founding of the township of Akkeshi. Displays include comparisons of old-fashioned and modern fishing implements and informative panels about topics such as oyster cultivation and fishing boat engines. The second floor contains a planetarium and is a popular venue for children's learning.
