  • It is a museum treasure seal. 100 Momochihama went a little further west from the center of Fukuoka City. I went on the bus station is like a new station West of Fukuoka City subway, but this time through the highway from Tenjin. Fukuoka Yahoo! Japan dome after getting off the bus by the Fukuoka Tower, walked into the South. Is orderly and well-maintained high-rise estates, libraries and other public facilities, office buildings and shopping centers, including the contemporary cityscape. Are square and Museum building is larger and a vast Atrium, a large pond on the South side, a very spacious space. Exhibition space is on the second floor, divided into permanent and temporary exhibitions. As art exhibition tour around the exhibition, is an exhibition of the history and culture of the Fukuoka local and permanent exhibition the main focus. A little away from the center of the impressive exhibit so come 延ばしましょう foot.

  • Spent a great deal of time at the permanent exhibition site. If you are a visitor that cannot read English, the audio guide is a must. However, there are parts that are not covered by the audio guide. Some of the guide missed some key information, such as the Mongols being hindered by typhoons during their assaults on Japan. Overall, there is plenty of information and a good place to spend a few hours.
  • Very interesting museum with local history of Fukuoka and Kyushu. Has in exhibition the golden seal, a very important part of its history and ticket prices are very cheap.
  • It is well built to explain the development of fukuoka city from prehistoric era. As the story of how the hakata and fukuoka combined and unfolded into fukuoka city, one could gain knowledge of how significant this city is as the forefront of japan to the china and korea relationship. I especially happy to have discounted prize as a student, eventhough i am studying in different prefecture. Very understanding indeed
  • 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.
