The museum walks the visitor through the history of this region. It was a fabulous introduction to understanding settlement patterns and cultural changes. Well worth the time! And, there is a combo ticket which includes a visit to the castle!!
Great view over city and a very well thoughtout path through the museum. Starting at 700ad and moving forward through time. There is something for children and people who are interested in archeologi and history. The audio guides are well Worth the 200 yen!! Be...More

I love the visit to this museum! It’s amazing how Osaka’s history is presented to visitors. It’s worth every cent to also bundle the ticket to this museum with that of the Osaka castle. Do cater about 3-4hrs for the whole trip.
The museum doesn't really have anything special and is mildly interesting. They do try to make the best of it, which is admirable. Nice on a rainy day and you already saw all others sites in Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, etc.
