Kitakyushu Museum of Natural History & Human History

Sarakura, Kawachi-Higashida area Leisure / Museum / See / Play

The museum exhibits everything in a grandiose scale, including the birth of the earth until the present day and the evolution of life and nature. You can feel the full impact of the many world-class dinosaur skeletons on display. The museum does not only exhibit very important historical collections, but also displays the habitats and lifestyles of the people who lived in the Yayoi period (1000BC-300AD), as well as the Meiji (1868-1912), and Showa (1926-1989) eras.

The museum will be closed from February 1 to March 3, 2023 due to the renewal of the permanent exhibition.
