From such bombastic name I was really expecting much more than what I saw: - examples of sound/image/touch-sensors/3D processing in various live exhibitions. It's mostly children oriented from my impression. I found few interesting things among those, but still from Sony expected something more bombastic...More

Hard to see the point with this place. If you are waiting for someone or something nearby you can browse through the various experiences. But it is not worth the visit. Better use your time in Tokyo / Odaiba elsewhere. Children might like it though.

This museum is fun and interactive if a little on the small side. The exhibits feel very original compared to US science museums and everything is touch-friendly - plus all the directions come in English so you know what's going on. Because of the limited...More

I expected something more, something expectional from a place like this. The "games" are OK and fun, but they are not representing state-of-the art technology. I.e. the 3D cinema nowadays is not a big deal, I missed the "wow" factor. Great place for kids, but...More

Several rather weird "experiences" mostly suited for small children. The entrance fee 200 yen was appropriately modest, but I had expected more from this. Instructions and information in English was good though.
