The castle interior now serves as a museum space, hosting both an exhibit on local history and items from the art collection of Sato Sukekuro.
Toyama Castle is open year round except for the two day period from December 31st to January 1st. Business hours are from 9am to 5pm and admission is 210 yen to enter the castle keep and 310 yen to view the exhibits while you're there.
