The museum told you how the political development of southern Kyushu impacted Meiji Restoration. The audio lesson in the theatre is something you shouldn't miss. The museum located next to a river with a array of Sakura trees. Good spot for photos during blossom season.

This museum is a fascinating collection and explanation of the geological and human history of Kyushu, particularly southern Kyushu. We spent more than 2 hours looking and reading and actually could have slowed down a bit to study more carefully. One of the better museums...More

I find most Japanese museums have great English descriptions but few of the displays did so here. The subject matter is interesting, but I'm not exactly sure what was being displayed. The sound show had English headphones which was good. It's an easy walk from...More

Had a great insight into Japanese history. The robot presentation was great. Their civil wars were a little difficult to fully understand.

Recommended for those interested in Japanese history, you'll learn a lot about the crucial role the men of Kyushu played in the modernization of Japan.

I enjoyed my visit to the Meiji Restoration museum and learnt a lot. The displays are interesting but most of the commentary in in Japanese (some in English too).
