The Hanno Municipal Museum is located at the foot of the scenic Mount Tenran, and is nicknamed "Kittosu". The museum opened in 1990 as the Hanno Municipal Museum of History and Culture, and changed its name to the current one when it reopened in 2018.
The permanent exhibition consists of the History Exhibition Room, which introduces the unique history and culture of the Hanno City area, the "Hanno and Nishikawa Wood" corner, which displays the history and current state of Nishikawa wood, one of the specialties that supported the prosperity of Hanno, a city of forests and culture, and the "Nature Around Us" corner, which introduces the geology, flora and fauna of the Mt. Tenran and Hanno riverbank area.
The museum also holds special exhibitions and special projects, as well as various lectures, study sessions, and nature observation events from time to time.
