Inochino Tabi Hakubutsukan (Kitakyushu Museum of Natural History and Human History) #2

I have always wanted to visit Inochino Tabi Hakubutsukan and finally made the trip recently. I left JR Hakata Station at about noon assuming that the visit would take an hour or so, but the museum was much larger than I had expected and there were a number of fascinating exhibits I wanted to see. In addition to fossil exhibits, the museum had displays of Fukuoka history and nature. It had so many interesting things to do that I ended up staying for 3 hours. This museum also allows you to “touch and feel” items, bringing the cultural history to life for visitors. You can touch fossils, watch movies, and enjoy various attractions based on the history of dinosaurs. It is easy to get to the museum from Ogori City and it is close to Space World and Aeon Mall, a large shopping center. I recommend it as a fun spot to go with family and friends.
