Focusing on the history and origins of the city with a special look into the life and achievements of Masumune Date, this museum is probably the first one you want to visit on your trip to Sendai. It will give you great perspective into the city, even though as a museum you'll probably find better ones elsewhere. Altogether, the museum's collections number about 90,000 artefacts covering history, culture, and arts and crafts. Only about a thousand items are shown in the permanent exhibition at any one time. These are constantly cycled so every trip to the museum feels like a fresh one. However, they do follow a common theme - prehistoric era, Masumune Date's origins, the castle and the territory and the city's modern history.
