  • 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 »
  • Wanted to see the gold and ran into an almost closed. Entering the exhibition hall and now the gold seal. Dug is smaller than I thought, but also to see and a little impressed. Many exhibits in the exhibition room of the history of Fukuoka, Oklahoma, city place.

  • It is a Museum of public 100 Momochihama, Fukuoka waterfront. I went to Finland design exhibition started from 1/2017. Held at Finland design was very interested in, I was so happy. Ad-hoc, open Finland design shop in front of the venue on the second floor, was lined with vintage accessories. In the hotel's tea room.

  • 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.
