Kitakyushu Environment Museum

The Kitakyushu Environment Museum was established in 2009 with the goal of telling the story of Kitakyushu’s struggle with pollution on its way to becoming an environmental capital city.
As it was during the time of Kitakyushu’s environmental troubles, a connection point for exchange between students, citizens, local government, industry, and so on is needed in order to coordinate roles for the implementation of a sustainable and environmentally sound society. Therefore, the Museum seeks to be a “Environmental Education exchange point for citizens” so that Kitakyushu City can continue its journey to becoming an Environmental World Capital City. The Museum was established with administrative support from the Takamiya Mariver Foundation for Environmental Protection. (I think there should be more information here about what you can learn at the museum, so the italics mean I added it.
