Matsumoto Seicho Memorial Museum


Using exhibits and graphic panels, the Matsumoto Seicho Memorial Museum offers an introduction to the broad array of creative activities of author Matsumoto Seicho from Kitakyushu City. The giant, 22 meter (72 foot) long timeline consisting of a chronological history of Matsumoto’s life and old news reels packs a powerful punch! An original animated feature entitled “Lines and Dots” is also screened in the museum’s Detective Theater! Learn more about the author at the interactive library, pick up one of his novels at the gift shop, or simply relax in the reading room or cafe.
