This was an entrance fee venue but it was worth it. The Hakata dolls and the woven textiles displayed were ancient crafts to be admired.There was a coffee shop and a merchandise shop.It was an enjoyable hour on a rainy day

The Hakata dolls exhibited on the second floor are well worth a visit to this crafts centre. You can enjoy traditional green tea and see crafts like Hakata cloth on the ground floor. Don't miss it!

We came upon this delightful place just steps away from the Kushida shrine. Most of the important exhibits have English explanations about Hakata dolls, scissor making, multicolor glass making, silk weaving and others. Well worth the visit and the admission is free!

This lovely little museum has wonderful displays of Hakata's traditional arts & crafts. You'll see woven textiles, dolls, scissors, tops, glass and bamboo arrows. There's also a small cafe and clean bathrooms. Elevator for those who have a problem with stairs.

This is a tiny museum, but very nice to see if you are in the area. It is right by Kushida Shrine, so it isn't out of the way to check out this small gem. It also has a cafe and a small gift shop...More
