There were not much to see considering a huge size of the building. Pricey though. Actually there was only one floor to see things. No interactive media. Nothing much to see here.

This museum is showing a lot of overseas things that is not Kyushu related. Many are fake items, not the original one. Don't deserve your time and money.

Visited the Kyushu National Museum on a hot summer afternoon. Perfect to spend an hour or two here because of the heat outside. Saw 2 restaurants in the vicinity but have not tried it. Entrance fee for the main exhibition is around 400yen. I think...More

The architecture of the museum itself is worth going. The museum is fairly new and the collection has been displayed nice and logically. Other than the museum I am not so sure that Daizaifu is worth a trip. If you are by car then it...More
