Husband is a war history buff and found this a really interesting museum. Certainly the reception staff couldn't have been more helpful and the English audio was very helpful.

Whilst a large amount of the information is in Japanese, there is sufficient in English and there is an app as well. The model of the Yamato is superb. It gives a very good insight into the area growth, decline and growth.

The might and splendor of the battleship Yamato was shown as well as how it was brought down by the night of air power!

It was awesome and so very informative.

Don’t forget to check out the exhibits room with the Japanese Zero Fighter and midget submarine.

It's more than just about a ship, even tho there is a focus on the ship and its sister.
It's inexpensive (the other one's even free), and i recommend visiting both.
It goes quite a bit into Kures naval history wich i found very interesting. Would go again.

While the large Yamato model is the centerpiece for the musuem, there are some very informative exhibits surrounding the model. These exhibits give details on the modernization of the Japanese navy prior to WW2, and the story of the Yamato up until it's sinking at Okinawa, as well as the discovery of the wreckage. There's also an exhibit on subs and planes used during the war.
The museum has an app available for smart phones (can't remember if it was availble for iPhones), which had audio descriptions for various parts of the musuem available in English, but it was a bit difficult to use as the location service it provides was somewhat glitchy, it was supposed to offer an audio file when you got to certain areas in the musuem, but it kept jumping around. However each area has a sign so you can override the location service and select which audio file to listen to.
Most of the exhibits are in both Japanese and English, however, some are only Japanese, including the one on Operation Ten-Go, which was a bit disappointing.
