Planetarium plus Children's scientific play house
Jul 2019 • Family
This is a GREAT place if you have children.

First, it is FREE!!!! Each planetarium show costs the adults money. The children are still free.

The building is a little dated, as is the science based activities but the kids sure don't seem to mind.

The first floor is filled with physical activities: climbing, magic mirrors, running speed traps, electronic magnet etc - these activities can keep a child busy easily for a hour.

The second floor has a model train set that can be moved. As well as solar powered toys and video game based activities.

As for the Planetarium show: it was as it is supposed to be. A good show!!! For us, an opportunity to rest a bit after strenuous activity downstairs.

A great place to go if the weather isn't cooperating. Only go if you have children.

A strong recommendation.

Great, interactive museum for kids to explore and it’s next to a small water park!
Jul 2019 • Family
We visited here with our three children age 10, 9 and 6. They loved the interactive trains and the climbing structure that led from the first to second floor. This place isn’t huge by any stretch but it has a certain charm to it and I would say that most kids would enjoy some time here. We watched a show in the planetarium in Japanese ( only one English sowing a day) which was a little tricky but still entertaining.
Staff were absolutely lovely and very welcoming. Admission is free ( aside Planetarium show) so it’s a great way to escape the heat or rain and is v close to the Peace Memorial Museum etc.
There is a watermark next door which we also went to ( think it’s only open in July and August?) so our kids were very happy with this!

What a great way for children to learn about science and crafts. There are lots do hands on items for children and adults, to try. Well worth a visit if you have children.

Free, friendly and fun
Nov 2018 • Family
We visited on a Sunday morning it wasn’t too busy and no school groups.
On the ground floor there is large climbing frame, with various optical effects built in, that pops out on the second floor amongst other places.
The second floor is where the train set is laid out.
Our 4 year old was satisfied with those two displays. The dated feel to the place is an opinion that didn’t cross his mind!
For older children look to the other reviews.

Great free rainy afternoon adventure
Sep 2018 • Family
We spent 2-3 hours at this museum and the kids (8 & 11), had a great time. The price was right, and although there was a class visiting, it did not seem overwhelmingly busy. There was enough English to figure out the purpose of each hands on display, and the kids loved the fact that it was very interactive, and covered a broad range of interests (from electricity, to trains, to soccer, and space). It's very close to the A-bomb dome, and a great way to spend a rainy afternoon.

Good place for kids
Jun 2018 • Family
It is a Science museum which is good for kids from 4 to 12 yrs old. There is no admission fees.

There are many Science experiments and can keep the children entertained for a few hours.

There is no café / restaurant in the museum.

Great place for Kids.....but there are a lot of them.
Jun 2017
Great Children's Museum, a lot for kids to do. Very hands on and focused towards learning, as well as enjoyment for the kids. It is a popular place, there were a lot of kids there. I wouldn't let that distract you though, well worth the visit.

A must visit museum for children
Jun 2017 • Family
We took our grandchildren to this museum and they absolutely loved it. They did not want to leave but it was closing time so there was no choice. This is a childrens' hands on museum that is educational and fun. There are three free floors with the fourth floor housing their planetarium. The planetarium has a minimal fee to enter. The three free floors are filled with items for the children to experience ranging from climbing, to speed timing, to train operation, to items too numerous to mention. This is a great facility. It is geared for younger children and is definitely a must visit. Our grandchildren loved this museum and I feel very confident that your children will feel the same. A definite must visit for the benefit of your children

Fabulous FREE museum
Dec 2016 • Family
This is a fabulous free museum--in America you would be charged at least $15 per kid to climb, explore, do science projects and all sorts of hands on activities. My kids, ages 6, 8 and 10, spent at least 3-4 hours here and were not bored when we walked out. It was a great way to allow them to burn some energy after spending time at the A bomb sights. I highly recommend!

my kids loved it and it is free
Jul 2016 • Family
My twins are almost 12 and still enjoyed this place. There is a full size steam engine outside they climbed on. Inside were the usual physic investigation games found in most science exploration museums. The kids could investigate colour, light, electricity, magnets, mirrors, solar power train set, etc. All in Japanese. There was a climbing frame/tunnels for kids to move between levels. Stairs for parents. There was an educational movie on the 4th floor which adults pay for and kids are free but it was in Japanese and looked suited to younger children. It is in easy walking distance from peace park and has swimming pool next door. If we had known we would have brought our bathers.
