Kitakyushu Museum of Natural History & Human History is the largest museum of its kind in western Japan.
Based on the concept of the “journey of life,” visitors to the museum can enjoy highly entertaining exhibits that are both fun and insightful.
The museum houses a number of reconstructed skeleton specimens, such as a 35m long seismosaurus and a stegosaurus, transporting visitors back to the age of the dinosaurs.
Another highlight of the museum is the Time-Travelling Room, where robotic dinosaurs come to life in dioramas which reconstruct Kitakyushu during the Mesozoic and Cretaceous eras.
There is also the History Zone, which reconstructs a Yayoi period dwelling and displays Tangible Cultural Properties.
