Nice Building, Okay Artifacts
Nov 2019 • Couples
The building is beautiful and the exhibits were nicely displayed but I was somewhat disappointed in the artifacts themselves. I appreciated the complimentary headsets that explained the different exhibits. The 8K movie allowed you to see some of the pieces in great detail and with good explanations. Nice to visit if in the area.

Highly interesting..
Nov 2019 • Couples
..especially if you're lucky enough to have a Special Exhibit of your interest taking place at the same time. We immensely enjoyed the 3 Kingdom one (a lot of info in English is available all throughout the visit. Congrations to the curator and to his/her team for their outstandind job).
The museum is located next to the Tenmangu shrine and easily accessible through an escalator.

General Museum Exhibitions
Nov 2019 • Couples
The tickets cost ¥430 per head to check out the general exhibition area on the 4th floor. We had an English guide explain the architecture of the museum. That's a must especially for architects and engineers. Either way, you really learn a lot about how the Japanese take care of these artifacts. The exhibition itself is in one big hall with a lot of different rooms. But I like how organized and numbered the rooms are. They're historically and chronologically explained. There are English explanations. But there's also a free audio guide that you can get on the 4th floor. An hour here will suffice. Unless you also want to visit the special exhibition which rotates every quarter I think.

Well worth a visit

A beautiful structure and interesting museum with helpful staff and well stocked gift shop. Short walk in delightful gardens from the temple precinct. Short train ride from Fukuoka to Dazaifu.

Well Curated
Sep 2019 • Solo
A bit on small size given that it is a National Museum, there was only one floor open when I came. Still a wide variety of East Asian art such pottery, fabric, Buddhist, amongst other things. Actually it's kind of organized chronologically. Enough English to keep me busy a little over an hour.

Beautiful building & in the countryside. Museum only consists of 1 floor & not many exhibits. Not worth the trip.

Must visit in for people looking ro learn about East Asia region
Mar 2019 • Friends
Visited solo, the entry ticket was same as anywhere in Japan, despite being one of the national museums of Japan, and highly recommended if you are looking to learn something about the premodern history of East Asia and the Japanese interactions with East Asian countries, especially with Korea and China. There are so many archeological artefacts starting from paleolithic period till the present day. You may even need at least half day( even a day depending if you are an researcher) to roam through all the exhibits. It's located just close to another famous tourist spot of Fukuoka, Dazaifu Tenmangu, so perhaps it's a must kind of attraction, although nits almost an hour from the Hakata Station.

They have the best tourist gift shop that I have seen in Fukuoka, Japan.

The interior design of the building is very interesting.

Fabulous National Museum!
Nov 2018 • Couples
This museum would be worth going to even if there was nothing in it. The building and its setting are amazing. But even better, when we were there, the museum was hosting a showing of some of the many artworks from the Okura Collection. This was clearly the best Asian art show I'd ever seen and expertly curated. Apart from this special collection, the museum is primarily devoted to historical items (some going back to paleolithical times) of Japan and other parts of Asia. The use of multimedia in the exhibits is the best I've seen. Highly recommended.
