  • A slight walk to get there, but if you get a chance you can come here via the East Imperial Gardens to break up the walk. Free entry if you have a Grutt Pass. the museum is spread over quite a few lev...  more »

  • Vacation season is near an elementary school, kindergarten students to science and technology are finding a lot of trips into the pipe. Numerous studies and experiments can be seen right in front of a good study.

  • Staff are all very knowledgeable. Fascinating, creative displays which really captures the wonder and mystery of science and technology. If you are in Odaiba, don't miss this place. Good option if it's a rainy day too. Restaruant on top floor is always packed and food is average so better to take a packed lunch or eat at one of the restaurants in the shopping malls nearby.
  • This is a marvelous children's science museum with lots of interesting interactive displays geared towards children. Almost all of the display captions are in Japanese only. While a bit of a disappointment on the science content, we did learn a lot about Japanese culture just by watching the families interact with the museum and each other. For patrons over the age of 10, a more intellectually challenging and astonishing collection is to be enjoyed at the National Museum of Nature and Science in Ueno Park.
  • An excellent site to take children of all ages- the attractions are educational but many are genuinely fascinating too. The museum isn't perfect- the restaurant is only accessible by a set of stairs making it troublesome for parents with baby carriers. The museum was clearly established several years ago and looks tiny bit tatty. The lower floors are a bit disappointing compared to the awesome 5th floor. Overall though it makes for a fantastic visit: good value for money and lots of fun.
  • Everything is in japanese yet it is by far the best science museum I have ever visited. Everything is interactive and well explained. We spent a whole day here. It had 5 floors of experiments and interactivity. Every 30 mins there is a scientist showcasing. We watched a liquid hydrogen experimentation for 30 mins, it was the best ever. Riding a bus, using a crane, sound and optic experiments, electrical circuts and all. If you have a child or if you are a geek yourself, you should certainly visit. Best ever.
  • Great museum with a much larger selection of exhibits than the Miraikan. I would especially recommend this for families with children as there are tonnes of interactive exhibits compared with the Miraikan. Although they advertise that the museum is in japanese only, it is very easy to understand visually what is going on on each of the exhibits. A must see in Tokyo.
