Good museum for kids with decent entrance fee. Need to pay more for planetarium (only in Japanese) on the 6th floor. It has metal, water, soil, human body, day to day appliances exhibits, not to mention dinosaur replica

The museum is huge and has lots for both adults and children to see and do. We spent the whole day here and didn't cover everything. Definitely worth a visit, especially if you're travelling with children.

I found it more about technology than science. It shows how things work and how they are made. Not a lot is in English, but the hands-on features allow you to explore. Local kids of all ages were going crazy exploring.

Having visited others planetariums around the world I expected a spectacular show! What I got was a 5th grade astrology lesson and poor visuals. The constant overlay of images had my night vision constantly readjusting. The announcer seemed to focus on astrological symbols more than...More
