This museum is highly recommended when visiting Dazaifu. The building surrounded by the hills and greens plus the exhibits about Japan and its neibours - a very enjoyable half-day visit for me and the family. Loved it.

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.

Spent a day in Dazaifu (while visiting Fukuoka for a few days) and decided to pay a visit to this museum. The building alone is worth the visit! The exhibits explain things very well, and puts Kyushu firmly into the context of Japanese history in...More

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.

The Kyushu National Museum (Kyuhaku) is supposedly one of the largest museums in Japan. We were impressed with the massive architecture design of the building as well as the long (& colourful) escalator that leads to the entrance of the museum. The exhibits gives us...More
