what a pleasant suprise! especially on a wet and cold day! just viewing the 360degree cinema is well worth the admission. The screen of the 360 degree cinema is a sphere, with top and botttom !!Rich collections of animal fossil and the first quartz watch!...More
This is one of many museums surrounding Ueno Park. There is plenty too see and something for everyone to enjoy. The museum is well laid out with 2 key areas - Global and Japan specific. You can get through the global side in about 2...More
Some very interesting information with the 360 dome being the best.
Shame the translator of many of the exhibits had a few days off as almost all are in Japanese when a little help in English would have been useful.
There's a wide variety of things in the museum ranging from chemistry to evolution, dinosaurs etc. The collection is not huge though so it's not overwhelming. We focused our time on the global glalleries (there's Japan galleries in addition which we didnt have the time...More
My children enjoyed the small collections that were well arranged and curated. There were limited English narratives but that wasn’t a turn off and audio guides are available. Children are free which was a plus.
Went here bc several review sites put it on top 10 for kids in Tokyo. I have no doubt that it's a great museum, well resourced and laid out but not a winner for our kids aged 10 and 13. Bored after 1hr. Only take...More
Honestly wasn’t to excited in the first place but upon entering and going through the exhibits you’d really want to spend a day there to explore the various galleries. Think it’s fantastic they make it free for kids below 16 and senior citizens. Mind blown!

This museum was huge and had all types of science and natural history. We had a great time exploring and learning about many different animals. The specimens were amazing. All of the exhibits were stunning to look at.
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
