Given its name, I had expected some historical artifacts to be displayed. There were surprisingly few of them at this musuem. The vast majority of the display consists of dioramas depicting historical events. This place is mainly catering to children.

This museum is located on the 8-10 floors of a large building. Google maps got us to the surrounding building but the lack of signs got us confused how to get to the actual museum. We ended up going in the side doors with help of a passerby, since we didn't see the signs in the main entrance. You need to take the elevator to the actual floor of the entrance.
Very interesting museum housed in three floors. Remake of an old Japanese "village/town" with lots of old artifacts of that era. For a fee you can dress in the traditional kimonos and have your photos taken.
Well worth a visit when you are in Osaka

This is a wonderful museum to take the kids to, or if you're a lover of museums. The diaramas there are first class giving an insite into 7th century Japan. It's is very cheap with kids being free. We would recommend after or before visiting the castle as it's close by.

I love the visit to this museum! It’s amazing how Osaka’s history is presented to visitors. It’s worth every cent to also bundle the ticket to this museum with that of the Osaka castle. Do cater about 3-4hrs for the whole trip.
