The Shiretoko Museum features a great number of creatures from Shiretoko's ecosystem, such as stuffed animals and insect specimens. Visitors can learn the relationship between nature, history and culture through its collection of earthenware and stoneware artifacts dating back to the Jomon Period, along with items from the Ainu people. The museum also introduces culture and festivals from the regions of Taketomi Town in Okinawa Prefecture (Shari's sister town) and Hirosaki City in Aomori Prefecture (Shari's friendship city). The museum includes an alpine botanical garden and wildflower garden, and also serves as a shelter helping wildlife recover from injury or accidents.
