This museum was established in 1915 as the treasure house of the Dewa Sanzan Shrine. In the 27th year of the Showa era, it received designation under the Museum Act and was renamed the “Dewa Sanzan History Museum.” The current building was completed in 1970. Many of the artifacts in its collection date back to the era of syncretism between Shinto and Buddhism during the Shugendo period.
