This is a very well done and highly interactive museum that kids will really enjoy! The planetarium is especially good, but the shows sell out quickly so I suggest getting there in the morning rather than afternoon.

Kind of a all-in-one science museum where general science information is presented. Quite informative and interesting.

Great interactive learning grounds for children and adults. Fantastic place for family to spend at least a day. Many interesting exhibits and demonstrations. However will be better if they are able to cater for international visitors.

It is a shame, that such huge and modern museum doesn't provide translation of all information in English. Only English words you see are the name of sections, which doesn't help you to understand the meaning of different objects.

This could be named as a good place for teens and students where they could get them selfs educated. Nice location to see around if you are a traveler.

They say it's the world largest planetarium. It is impressive, the quality of the images is amazing. You just feel the Japanese quality. Museum itself is worth a visit, especially if you have kids hungry for knowledge! And, of course, the staff is very polite and helpful.

The museum is easy to reach by subway, basically between two subway stations. You cannot miss this place, as in front is huge space rocket and also planetarium "glued" to the main building. The tickets were less than 1000yen (I forgot, but it was around 600yen for and adult, no discount and not the planetarium) and the staff speaks English... More
