During Cherry Blossom Season, visiting is free. It has historical data of the battle fought at and around this castle. They have a replica model of the battle as well as armor and weapons used.

Ogaki Castl was designated as a National Treasure in 1936. The present one is a reconstruction of the original which was destroyed during the Second World War. It is quite small but is of interest due to it's importance during the battle of Sekigahara.
