    I visited on a weekday. For summer vacation, travelling with children had many visitors. This is the entrance is open. Enjoyed the exhibit. It is good you can watch slowly. I felt children's events, and good with children.

    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.

    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.

Where to stay in Fukuoka

As the largest city on the island, a hub of commerce, transport, and tourism, and a base for exploration of the wider region, Fukuoka offers plenty of accommodations to choose from. The most established hotels lie in Chuo Ward, the district closest to the port and on the western bank of the Naka River. Standard and luxury options abound in the this area and surrounding districts, offering a range of additional facilities to suit all tastes and budgets. Budget-conscious travelers will be pleased to find hostels and guesthouses throughout the city, but again, primarily in this central area.
