A single corridor worth of crafts, which given a zero yen admission fee, is well worth it. You are really coming for the Fukuoka City museum, which is in the same building. You stay a little longer for the Traditional Crafts. Or, come for the free Wi-Fi in the FreeSpace room, also in the same building, do some work and then see a few crafts.

You can see an old merchant house preserved and filled with traditional crafts. Sometimes there are demonstrations (e.g., weaving).

Was happy to learn some background of some of the traditional crafts in Hakata. Small exhibit upstairs but covered a number of crafts I hadn’t realized were from this area. Appreciated the insight. Thank you!

This place is much like the so called "cheese factory" in Hokkaido... a front for selling and nothing much on traditional crafts for tourists who come to see the "real" Japanese arts and crafts. It's a misinformed tourist attraction!

I always adore visiting here. It is rarely busy but the displays I find amazing in terms of the quality and the design.
