Plenty of English to make it a place you should visit if you're in the area around Fukuoka/Hakata. Artifacts and history over 1000 years ago through modern times.

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.
