This city museum, fifteen minutes' walk from the Fukuoka Tower, takes you through the history of the region to the present day, which is fascinating. One of the centrepieces is the Gold Seal, given by a Chinese empereror to an emissary from what is now Japan, forming the earliest bit of evidence of the existence of a civilisation on Japan....

Fairly big and well displayed. Good selection of artifacts although it is mostly typical fare. Cafe has a nice view!

Local museum, nice restaurant, a bit like the 70tees.... Not expenses, let it be part of your walk through Ohori park.

The museum gives an overview of Fukuoka over the history. The most interesting us to learn about its international relations as port and place of diplomatic relations. Explanation us given in English although unfortunately there is not much explained about the traditions in town which is one of the nicest parts.

A well laid out museum, spanning the various periods of Fukuoka - from Nakoku to Korokan to Hakata and finally to contemporary Fukuoka. It is truly educational if one has the patience to read every panel and exhibit and be prepared to spend 2 hours here. The museum has a fairly good portrayal of the first century commerce, trading patterns... More

Fukuoka has lots of history - I think 1/2 of it is in here. Laid out very educationally. You could spend a full day, but your brain will get tired.
