  • There are many armor and Japanese swords. Even though it's after noon on weekdays, it's quite a person. Heavy buildings, spacious construction and many sofas, permanent and special exhibitions are all impressive. This is the museum I would like to visit for the first time and if I have a chance to go to Fukuoka.

  • Gold seal famous for social textbooks. It is here though it is not strange even if it is exhibited in the National Museum. As soon as the permanent exhibition hall enters, it is exhibited immediately. It's small, but it's shining. You can see your face close to the case. I couldn't take a smartphone photo well. There are various explanation exhibitions related to gold seals. After that, the history of Fukuoka, excavated from the ancient tomb and ceramics are used to devise the exhibition. It is located in a slightly inconvenient location. The admission fee is as low as 200 yen. There is also a locker with a return of 100 yen. How to think about this is the difference between evaluations.
