Kitakyushu Museum of Natural History and Human History

In November 2002, three municipal museums in Kitakyushu, the Natural History Museum, the Human History Museum and the Museum of Archaeology, were combined into the Kitakyushu Museum of Natural History and Human History. With its concept of "the Journey of Life," the Museum is committed to presenting the evolution of life on earth and human history. The main streets, named the Earth Mall and Culture Mall, divide the exhibition into a Natural History Zone with 4,500 items, such as fossils and other specimens, and a History Zone with 1,500 items, such as earthware and ancient texts.
