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... More

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... More

A very creative and wonderful place to visit with children. Or even by yourself and elderly! There are few activities to play and see! The entrance is FREE but staffs couldn't speak much English. However, they were very eager and friendly to help translate things and explain about the place to you!

Overall this place has seen much better days. However, it is free and no charge. So if you are around Hiroshima Castle or Peace Memorial Park, you could stop here in between with the children so they can get some energy out and run around and explore. They had fun, so that is what matters. I'd even be okay with... More

Stumbled across this museum with my 2 year old boys. Nice interactive games and puzzles and the 2nd floor giant train set that allows children to control a train each was great fun. Some of the exhibits seemed to be closed and looking at them it may have been a health and safety issue. There is a real train outside... More
