Only two small floors, but a lot of interesting info. There are QR-codes that give you english info. Some of the tablets have an english option too. There's a small museum shop upstairs. Definately a good ~30min activity especially if you love parasites!

It is an interesting collection of parasites. It's only interesting if you are not appalled by what could be living inside you. It is a relief to see how many gross afflictions have been eradicated but still it is kind of stomach turning. My science-y brother in law loved it. I doubt I will go back but I would point the curious there. It's free so if you are grossed out or bored, you just leave.

Our family seeks out off-the-beaten-path places when we travel. This museum qualifies in this category! The museum is small but free (there is a donation box) and is full of disgusting parasites. There are actual specimens as well as diagrams and photos. The highlight for me was the 25 foot tapeworm. It made me want to upchuck.

Don't skip this Free museum of weird parasites in glass tubes on display. By the stairs going to 2nd floor make sure you look at the picture book. Only some things are labeled in English but it's still an hourlong tour. The famous 8 meter tape worm is upstairs along with the chigger mite in wax. From the JR Yamanote line to Meguro, take the west exit and walk 1 km . It's up hill from Otori -jinja mae bus stop on the ground floor of apartment building. Lots of locals were headed for it also so you can always ask. T shirts and key chains are for sale upstairs.

If you are a true science person, you will love it. If you're just tagging along, then it's small and not interactive. My hubby was in heaven and bought a parasite t-shirt in the gift shop, Read previous reviews on how to get to the museum as the directions were clear and easy to follow.
