For Japanese this is important but I found it historical. An hour is enough to get it. The building is impressive and the escalator is impressive.

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!

State of the art, eco friendly regional museum. Did I mention English tour guides - no charge? The tour guide was happy to have us because they said that they do not always get to practice their English. Excellent collection. When we were there they...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.
