Not a big museum but well thought out with clear illustrations, some original objects and others enlarged reproductions (a screen painting of a complex battle of the Amakusa-Shimabara Rebellion). Little of the titling, captions, or text, however, is in English. There is an English-language version of a video re-telling the history of Christians here, from the coming of the Jesuit missionaries in the 16th century, through the banning of Christianity from 1600, to its re-emergence in the late 19th century. Some statues, archaeological finds, many texts (scrolls and books) in Japanese. The museum sits on a hill above the main part of town (Hondo). Walkable down, past a local, well-kept cemetery. I would take a cab up.
