  • Weekday 60 minute wait. Around, look around and as soon as possible though. Myoe, know that it is recommended. Looking at the works of Hayao Kawai also OK. The birds and beasts caricature until the scrolls in the first half. Myoe's masterpiece scrolls protect the uisang ship zenmyo turned into a dragon treasure Hua founder master picture transfer (part).

  • I went because I had missed in Ueno, seen in travel in Kyushu and the withered feelings in 80 minutes waiting Saturday morning. No sign hangs by the entrance this time, moving in the crowd after the main exhibition. No ideas how to exhibit? I think in the matrix is possible and to make sure. You want revisit because there was no pity in this popular exhibit, could not enjoy the slow, building alone is spectacular, view the permanent exhibition room.

  • 館藏文物豐富,展覽的安排用心,果然不負日本第四大博物館之盛名~ 想深入了解日本的歷史,九州的文化,這兒是可以深入造訪的地方! 友善的旅遊設計,說明大多多國語言並列,讓不熟悉日文的我也能看得很明白, 博物館的流線造型外型非常時尚,與天滿宮僅一道隧道扶梯之隔,推薦到天滿宮的旅客也可順道造訪,對於了解日本的歷史文化非常有幫助!

  • This is a must see Japanese museum. The quality of the art collection is first rate and includes art from a number of Asian countries. The museum itself is stunning and easy to visit. You can easily spend three hours enjoying the beautiful collections exhibited. The museum also has special exhibits but reservations are usually necessary and may still involve quite a lengthy waiting in line.
  • Wonderful setting for this amazing museum with plenty of English including an audio guide. Great train trip from Fukuoka as well.
  • The museum has an elegant and modern building that exemplifies the merger between history and art. A must see for every fan of history!
  • A very modern design museum built on the hill. The exhibition is mainly about how Japanese is evolved and how the culture is influenced by China and West Asia. They have English guide so it is a good place to visit if you are in 太宰府
  • A very nice and modern museum. It's accessible to everyone because the museum provides many languages. Renting an audio guide is free.
