If you want to learn more about the rich history of the Hakata District, the Hakata Machiya Folk Museum does a good job of showcasing real-life examples of what life was like in the past. Aside from looking at historic timelines around the exhibition hall, visitors can have a firsthand look at old artisan traditions and listen to Hakata dialect on antique wall phones from 1899, all the while walking through a reproduced Hakata home (machiya). Workshops and exhibitions are held twice daily, between 10am to 12pm and 2pm to 4pm. Adults pay a 200 yen fee, while children up to junior high school age can enter for free.
