A museum dedicated to a prominent literary figure who hails from Kanazawa. As with most museums related to literature or poetry in a specific language, unless you read Japanese or you’re a big Muro Saisei fan, there’s not much of interest.

The entrance hall does have a pleasant water feature and entry is free with the Kanazawa City Cultural Facilities Admission Pass, so at the least you can get some shelter from the sun, rain or snow.
