The museum opened in 1994 on the partially returned ancestral land of the U.S. Futenma Air Base, in order to permanently display the "Illustrations on the Battle of Okinawa", a collaborative work by Iri Maruki (1901-1995) and Toshi Maruki (1912-2000), who were husband and wife. In addition, we have a collection of pieces by artists such as Käthe Kollwitz, Georges Rouault, Chimei Hamada, and Yayoi Kusama, as well as works by Okinawan authors. We hold collection exhibitions and special exhibitions three to four times a year.
