This is a nice visit away from the super touristy Dazaifu shopping trip. I was pleasantly surprised that the museum provided free English audio guide for me to listen to as I pass from artifact to artifact. Definitely worth a visit!

The visit to this place should be tied up with the visit to Dazaifu shrine and another shrine that is right after the exit from the subway. The design of the building is futuristic and the exhibits includes those from South east Asia, like Indonesia....More

It's quite a building housing Japanese artifacts. I'm not really patient going through museums so I don't have much to comment on, however the architectural design is quite impressive. It's not very crowded so it was very peaceful to go through. Quite a change from...More

Nice design of this Kyushu National Museum with the glass walls reflecting the green hills nearby. What a pity it was closed when we were there.

The Kyushu National museum is quite nice to visit but a bit small. If you have already visited the Fukuoka City museum, no need to go to the Kyushu National as a lot of the same exhibits are covered.
