Sapporo science museum is a bit old but well preserve and good place for young kids to learn and play. Unfortunately most information and instruction here are only in japanese. However the staff is very friendly to help if you have any questions. Notes: - dont miss out the space adventure ride simulator. Its a bit old but fun. My 7 years old boy have a good fun. - no restaurant or cafe within the facility, only place to seat and purchase thru vending machine (you can even purchase hot dog thru vending machine) - make sure the check the show runtime before come - the science center has several package from basic to other activities like planetarium. Unfortunately its only in japanese - kids are free, adult need to pay

Paid for tickets to visit the Exhibition Rooms as the Planetarium was in Japanese which we couldn't understand. The exhibits were interactive with a press button but most are worn out or not functioning and explanation texts are in Japanese. The concepts displayed are more suitable, educational & entertaining for preschoolers, boring for older children, teens & adults (The Hokkaido University Museum is so much more interesting/educational/impressive and foc). Not recommended as a tourist itinerary unless u have too much time and some extra money to spare.

We go to science museums on almost every trip we take so have visited several from London to Zurich to Shanghai. This was probably the best we have been to yet! We were greeted by a lady who had English cards so we could buy the right tickets which was promising, however inside English was very limited. However it didn’t matter as everything was interactive and a lot explained with images. We all played for a couple of hours, with our teenager lasting a little longer but our nine year old wanting to stay past the fourth hour! This is a really good interactive museum which is just so much fun for kids. Highly recommended.

We took a chance with this place and were more than pleasantly surprised. The kids absolutely loved the place (even the adults) and we spent the entire day there. For non- Japanese speaking crowd, can skip the Planetarium, which in essence is a thematic lecture with video, presented entirely in Japanese. Head straight for the museum instead. It’s 2-storey worth of interactive science exhibits which allow for ample hands-on experience. Best for kids aged 6 to 12. The ticket allows for multiple entries during the same day, so you can also skip out to the mall next to the science Centre for lunch.

The main exhibition halls are filled with interactive exhibits, suitable for both children and adults with an interest in science. It is possible to take the controls of a train, play with magnets, use a body scanner and generate electricity, and many more. We saw a robot show, with a robot that could play soccer and score a goal! Great for families, or anyone with an interest in science. We spent a few hours here, and visited both the planetarium show and the main exhibition halls. The planetarium show is only presented in Japanese, it was good but we did not fully understand it as we are not fluent in Japanese
