We've been to this museum and were delighted by the permanent exposition. The exposition looks quite new and is well organized, following a timely progression from prehistorical to modern eras, focusing on the region around Aizuwakamatsu. Every section is fully translated in english and there is plenty to read and learn for non-japanese speakers. We understood many things related to the core history of the region and how it played a role in japanese history overall. There was so much to see that we ended up leaving when the museum closed, wishing to come back for more. The staff was also very friendly, and for the low price of 280yen per adult, this museum is absolutely a must-see.

Really good museum, a modern building located in a nice garden close to the Tsurugajo, Aizuwakamatsu castle. A noce colletion of artifacts of the area, starting from prehistoric time to the recent past. Very interesting and well displeyed. Big parking lot and a nice cafe inside.

On Display is a permanent exhibition about the local history from pre-iceage until "modern times". As a foreign visitor, you get a handout in english with a general description of the respective areas of the exhibition. Additionally, there are multilingual boards for each area. All exponates are well prepared. However, descriptions at these exponates are in japanese only. You'll need a translation app if you can't read the script, but they offer free and strong WiFi without registration, so this is not really an issue. Prices are low as all cultural sights in Japan (we paid 530 ¥\ adult, children half price). If they have special/temporary exhibitions, you can view both for 1000 ¥ if you're into it. We spent about 1 1/2 hours on a rainy day and found it very informative.

Impressive modern building, with interesting displays about the local area's history. Not much English detail but some overview info in multiple languages. Special exhibitions are a hefty additional charge and seem to be in a smallish space and less likely to have any English info.
