Excellent museum, true to it’s title, all about history with artifacts dating back to the 5th century and explanations on the history of Osaka and area. If you like museums or history, this is worth the trip, in English or Japanese! Go here before Osaka...More

This museum definitely gives you a nice overview of Osaka’s history as well as nice views onto the castle. However, I found the explanations to become more (and too) superficial the more recent in history it had come. WWII and the time afterwards isn’t touched...More

Osaka Museum of History. It’s a nice place that you have to visit. I cannot say that it fulfilled with items, no. But it’s organized so well. I’d like to say visit it first if you plan to go to Osaka castle first. Reasons are:...More

The exhibition is very interesting.With background sound and lighting effect make it understandable even those in Japanese. They even have the old Japanese street. The interactive part where they have the volunteer who teach and interact with the visitor. I really enjoy the visit here.

This museum is worth a visit. It presents Osaka’s history and you have a great view over the city and on to the castle. I can really recommend going there, even though. 4/5. Missed one point because the exhibition could be improved here and there...More

We had a great time at the Osaka Museum of History. Almost adjacent to the park where Osaka Castle is located, it's really a must stop place.

Hi! I bought ours at the ticket kiosk for the castle. It looks like you can purchase at the museum as well. I guess it just depends on which you want to visit first. Have a GREAT time!!
