  • Visited in January. Go by bus from Hakata station is recommended. Won't bore you too much will arrive in 1, almost no walking time, and across the road along the sea. Popular exhibitions and seal a famous permanent exhibition is goes without saying, but also tea room furnishings nice detour we want to is. From lunch Bento set that was probably used for local flavor so impressions remained deeply.

  • Because it built during the bubble period, only the buildings very commendable, but frankly in the permanent exhibition it is not that great. Centerpiece is the gold seal of the national treasure. Pretty good spear and sword. Interesting events sometimes, related to the special exhibition is done, it's fun.

  • In recent times, participated in the events of the former relationship. Excellent content, spending meaningful time. Also Museum Han Committee he has King mark. I think is is pretty small, but worth a look.

  • 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.
