The Toyooka City Museum of Art was founded in honor of artists local to Toyooka City. Kiyonaga Itoh, a painter native to Izushi and famous for his fine-art nude paintings, donated some of his works to Izushi, kickstarting the creation of the museum in 1989.
Originally named the Itoh Kiyonaga Museum in honor of its first donor, the museum changed its name to the Toyooka City Museum of Art – Itoh Kiyonaga Memorial Hall as other local artists began to have their works displayed as well.
Currently, the museum houses works by Kiyonaga Itoh of Izushi, Hisaji Inagaki of Hidaka, Miyozo Kato of Toyooka, Hideo Kawahara of Hidaka, and Kozo Goto of Toyooka. Special exhibits are also held 2 to 3 times throughout the year.
