My friends visited it and recommended and it turned out a great fun-day out, yes, even solo. : )

Be prepared to spend the whole day if you like to try out every available show-n-info sections. There is parking facility which is reasonably set. Public transportation is also available. More detail is noted in blog below.

This museum should be a must for anyone with at least a passing interest in new technology and science. From a live performance by Honda's famous ASIMO robot, to hands on displays demonstrating the concepts behind quantum mechanics, robotic surgery and the International Space State, Miraikan cements itself as possibly the best place in the world to get acquainted with the absolute cutting edge of technology and scientific discover.

The museum is housed in a gorgeous modern building though inside the displays can be a bit sparse. If you read all the descriptions (in English and in Japanese) and try everything out, expect to take about 2 hours. It's not the biggest museum but unlike most science museums it documents and demonstrates technology currently being developed rather than providing an account of the history of science.

While it cannot compare with some other science museums in the world in terms of size, it approaches modern science in a different way and offers something none of the more traditional science and science history museums do.
