THE KYUSHU UNIVERSITY MUSEUM REMAINS ACTIVE ON AT THE FORMER HAKOZAKI CAMPUS 

 

   Since foundation of the Kyushu Imperial University in 1911, the Kyushu University has built up its history here at the Hakozaki campus for over 100 years. The relocation to the new campus (Ito campus) was completed in September 2018, and the Kyushu University and Fukuoka City Government are currently discussing about the future use of this site. Anyway, several historically buildings, including Faculty of Engineering Main Building, Head quarters Building 1, Porter’s Lodge, and Main Gate are scheduled to be conserved. 
   Currently, the Kyushu University Museum is active in the Faculty of Engineering Main Building, one of the historical heritages to the future, in the Hakozaki site. After temporal closure, we are pleased continue communicating the pleasure of scientific exploration based on specimens to the widest possible audience through publications, exhibitions, and educational programs again. 






School of Engineering Main Bldg.
Exhibits are located on the third floor.
