  • The exhibition is a complete showcase of the history of Fukuoka and Hakata, with a theme-style exhibition and a situational experience of AR technology.

  • It was during a business trip just a little spare time so I went, but should try taking the time and place. History of Fukuoka ancient and modern neatly organized, are exhibited. So far, well then I found called "Hakata often contact with overseas and a move was everywhere. Not only the famous seal. Hakata is seen much less and I thought, here is recommended. Always with the earphones, with commentary, look.

  • 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
  • Monday closed. Adult:200yen (150 yen). High school/University students :150 yen (100yen).No charge for Junior High School Students and younger. Admission to the Permanent Exhibition and Featured Exhibition Rooms are the same.Admission to the Special Exhibition room is set differently.Business Hours is 9:30AM- 5:30PM( Admitted until 5 p.m)
  • 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.
