Study stuffed animals from the area and listen to the story of how humanity developed in Kyushu. Children can play in a neolithic-era house or perform their own experiments in a handful of labs.

  • In addition to exhibiting dinosaur bones, various specimens such as animals and insects that live in the present day are exhibited. Moreover, the way of the exhibition is very pleasant one by one. Children enjoy it whenever they go. I can't take it off here on a trip to Kitakyushu with my children.

  • Huge museum with living reptiles and dinosaur skeletons. It is very educational, dinosaur exhibit has a few min show and the dinosaurs were moving. It does that almost 3 hours covering all 3 floors.  more »

  • My kid loves dinosaurs and this is a great place for them. Not much English on the signs and placards inside but he didn't care that much. There were audio guides available but we didn't use them, I assume they had English on them but I'm not sure. Well worth the trip.
  • Decided to visit this place to escape the rain and our group was pleasantly surprised. There were many exhibits on dinosaurs, marine animals, and even insects. The was also a cool show talking about the timeline of dinosaurs using robotics.
