Study stuffed animals from the area and listen to the story of how humanity developed in Kyushu. Children can play in a neolithic-era house or perform their own experiments in a handful of labs. You can buy stone samples and stuffed toys at the museum's well-stocked souvenir shop.

    I thought no Museum has enhanced it in 500 yen admission fee. The ground floor is very powerful in dinosaurs and fossils. And do not know if you asked a girl guide or such a large dinosaur fossil unearthed in where was told. It's enough, upstairs on the 3rd floor Kitakyushu history detail displayed and no matter how many times. Also I bring the kids.

Where to stay in Kitakyushu

Kitakyushu boasts a good number of accommodations to host its relatively modest amount of visitors. Primarily located across the canal from the city hall, the choice includes a number of high-rise hotels and simple "ryokan" (guesthouses). Take a look to the north of the main train station for the most luxurious options in town, with extensive views of the sea and the old buildings of the dock. Holiday rentals provide a particularly budget-friendly option further inland in the main residential districts.
