The museum had exhibits on prehistoric animals that used to live in Iwaki, geology, life in a coal mining town, and about Spa Resort Hawaiians, Iwaki's main claim to fame nowadays.
Most of the information was in Japanese, although there was an English handout available. Thankfully, you didn't need an awful lot of reading to appreciate the exhibits, which were real-life rather than computer-based. A giant skeleton of a dinosaur works pretty well in any language!
There's a souvenir shop available. The only Japan-related geological items available was amber from the region.
Not a world-class tourist attraction, but suitable for families, and people who like museums. Even better for those who can read Japanese.
