Science has been displayed at such a fundamental level that makes you feel like a curious child again. It also houses world's biggest planetarium but sadly the explanations were in Japanese only.

This is a lovely interactive museum, targeted mostly for kids, although adults can also enjoy it quite a bit. The museum features numerous exhibits from different fields of science, some of which are interactive. The best exhibit for me was the gigantic 3-stories tornado simulator, which creates a funnel out of nowhere. Truly impressive. The planetarium cinema was fully booked... More

Everything is in Japanese. There is an English smartphone app available, but to use it you will need a smartphone for each person, WITH HEADPHONES, and plenty of battery life. We wish previous Trip Advisor reviews had mentioned this! We can't vouch for how well the app works, because we didn't bring headphones. Also note that tickets for the deep... More

you will need at least 1-2hours here because there are a lot of things that you can play with, tinker with and just have fun with your kids. Don't forget to try the Deep Freeing Lab where it's -30c.

Could be more interesting is they provided more english explanations every exhibits. The pass for planetarium was sold out at noon. That is quite frustrating going a long way coming here for planetarium and you won't be able to see. Still, I think we enjoyed the creativity section where people have been very accommodating.

The museum is mainly targeted at kids and allows many hands on learning experiences. However, it has three very impressive shows to impress adults only as well: the large planetarium (japanese only - so it may get somehow boring), the electric discharge lab (with AWESOME Tesla coils discharges)and the deep cold lab (they put you at -30C, which is REALLY...

There is very little information in English. They have many interactive exhibits and it's a great place for families. The Planetarium isn't worth the extra fee as the show is entirely in Japanese and is basically the night sky with a computer mouse pointing to different stars with a man speaking. The museum is quite large and a family could... More

Our family went to the Museum in April 2015 and had a lot of interesting things to learn. The museum located in the city and can be reached by the subway plus a short walk.
