I struggled to make sense of mixed reviews that it is very interactive and that it requires a lot of reading. It’s both. To understanding the point of any interactive exhibit you have to do a fair amount of reading and work to make sense...More

I looked up about AI before we head to Japan , and I saw that you can be interactive with an Android in this museum, that's why we headed there. It's a bit far from the city but not hard to reach. The price is...More

We were told about this place by a tour guide as I'd said we'd like to see robots while in Japan. This was the place although I'd have thought by now there would be more of them. It seems as though Asimo has been around...More

Seeing Asimo 'perform' was the highlight of this visit. That speaks volumes! The exhibits were well set up and built but poorly planned in my humble opinion. The 'Japinglish' translations were woeful and the exhibits aimed squarely at children in a rather confusing way. Yes...More

Visited this museum just to see the robot (Asimo). Worth every Yen. Many other exhibits worth looking at also. Friendly staff, some spoke good English.

You cannot and you don't have to reserve tickets in advance. Read the website of Miraikan written in English carefully.
