  • The Museum's centerpiece is a gold seal found in shikanoshima island. Normally exhibited and unexpected, so was a little taken aback.

  • Awesome exhibition, very informative, doesn't cost much. Goes into detail about the history of the Kyushu island and its place in Japan.  more »
  • Nice museum with in-depth explanations on the roots of the city as a harbor for foreigners into Japan. I regret that there wasn't more ln the modern era of the city's history though.  more »

  • Excellent museum detailing the history of Fukuoka. There are informational panels and several short documentary clips that describe the major eras, events, and people that shaped Fukuoka to what it is now. A great stop (1-2 hours) for history junkies who want to know a little bit about Fukuoka.
  • It's a good place to get to know the culture and history of Fukuoka. However, it is a bit expensive to go in. They have good nursery room, which is an asset.
  • Clear exhibition that tells the history and culture of fukuoka city but there's limited English label which is a pity. Only worth the trip if you have time and read Japanese.
  • not so interesting
  • Fukuoka City Museum. When the ancient museums--let's see--the vertical fascia medieval > >,. Take a look at the upside. Connection with the Korean peninsula, income, etc. Try to calm. If you do not have the time, 1 hour. Visit the beach or even in the Fukuoka Tower momoi Chi. Close enough to walk.
