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.

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.
