    The Shiretoko Museum's displays include a great number of creatures from Shiretoko's ecosystem, such as stuffed animals and insect specimens. From nature to history and culture, the museum provides knowledge integrated across many fields, and the collection includes earthenware and stoneware artifacts dating back to the Jomon Period, along with items from the Ainu people. The museum also introduces local culture and festivals from Taketomi Town in Okinawa Prefecture (Shari's sister town) and Hirosaki City in Aomori Prefecture (Shari's friendship city). Outside, the museum gardens include an alpine botanical garden and wildflower garden, and also serves as a shelter for injured wildlife recovering from accidents.
