  • Went out to admire the gold seal was once a City Museum of art. Apart from the Centre became inconvenient, but nothing building fine, gorgeous. I was surprised. More of a surprise is the admission of 150 yen. It's cheap and good.

  • Went to see the seal, was impressed by the Spear of Fuma's book. Great mother of Pearl inlay. Bought a replica of the seal in the Museum shop.

  • I spent about 3 hours here and it was great. Each Japanese time period is covered from Jomon to the present. Only thing I didn't like was, "no photos", and limited English information. I think there i...  more »

  • 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.
  • Permanent exhibition focuses on the history of Fukuoka, includes topics such as the King of Na gold seal (National Treasure), the Kuroda clan, and the Hakata Gion Yamakasa. ¥200 admission. Nice place to swing by on the way to the beach. Recommended if you like history. Can easily spend 90 minutes here. Environment is family friendly. Many moms brought their kids here. But the displays are not very interactive, so not very suitable for younger kids. They may get bored.
  • Great facilities, friendly staff, found culture at an exhibition about DaVinci.
  • 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
