Friendly staff and interesting displays in a small museum. There are spaces for artists to work and answer questions from visitors. We learned a lot about Fukuokan traditions and festivals. Limited English displays, but there are enough.

These group of homes provide fun information about the Hakata area Fukuoka. The museum provides an opportunity to see the work of local artisans on the second floor and the gift shop has a nice combination of historic reproductions and new art work.

Nothing special about this museum. It is interesting, but one can find similar displays of traditional art in many countries. It is just next door to the beautiful Kushida Shrine, so you don't need to go out of the way to get here.
