We only had time to see the museum and not the show. The museum is very educational and has some fun facts. More entertaining for kids than for adults.

I looked up Koka Village, and if you're near there and going to visit it, I suggest just skip this. They are basically the same thing except Im not sute if Koka has the Ninja show.
