A well laid out museum, spanning the various periods of Fukuoka - from Nakoku to Korokan to Hakata and finally to contemporary Fukuoka. It is truly educational if one has the patience to read every panel and exhibit and be prepared to spend 2 hours here. The museum has a fairly good portrayal of the first century commerce, trading patterns and the start of diplomacy attempts to China. The exhibits included depiction of the various attempts by the Mongolians at invading Japan, as well as how Fukuoka grew into a castle town. The unique national treasure in the museum must be the Gold Seal for Emperor Guangwu of the late Han Dynasty. A must visit for Asian history buffs.
