The museum is on Itoigawa's ancient history as a jade-producing city, led to the construction of the Fossa Magna Museum and Geopark. The first Geopark in the world, Fossa Magna Geopark allows visitors to explore some of the unusual rock formations, as well as the tectonic line that splits Japan between two plates. The free public museum gives visitors an opportunity to learn more about the geological history of Itoigawa, Japan, and the world at large.
