  • So the holiday were empty on weekdays is pretty crowded. On the first floor with a huge globe hanging from them down, first of all it is and surprised. World's first global display using organic Panel with the symbol of the Museum. Reflects the 10 million image over the image in high resolution, bright space Earth. To say I do not know well, nice anyway. The flow of current in a fantastic url\n-and get tired even Vista. Exhibit floor and 3rd floor 5 floor is difficult from white can experience surface children's, was crowded with parents and children and foreign people. Diet snack drinks, hotdogs, restaurant in Curry and pasta. Nice restaurant, don't expect too much. Problem is around the dining options are not there to do it. Whether or not to eat, not something like this kind of practical. I think I went once.

  • I went to the exhibition there. Intent to thought-provoking exhibitions and made me think. It is great fun using the five senses.

  • Japan Science located in Koto city, visited the Museum. Besides the permanent exhibition exhibitions for a limited time, and touch on the latest science and technology. I think what may be difficult to some, but generally everyone from children to adults, and to visit the Odaiba area get the chance, as one of the destinations to be good. It is a good place to get off at Telecom Center station on the Yurikamome line.

  • Well spent time, wish we had all day as three hours was not quite enough especially if you buy Dome Theater tickets. The ASIMO demonstration was entertaining, I wish they would expand on it. Lots of useful and informative exhibits targeted at the younger curious minds with a good focus on sustainability and forward thinking. Perfect for teens but also recommended for anyone who enjoys science and technology, well worth the reasonable entrance fee of around 620 yen per adult or 400 yen per student.
  • A great science/tech museum covering innovation and exploration. Convert your unique data to music, use the binary “machine” and accelerate particles: lots of hands-on activities for all ages. Plus, robots! And a replica of part of the ISS. Some English throughout makes it accessible. Separate listening devices for the planetarium/3-d shows (worth the extra charge). Easy to spend half a day here.
  • This was my favourite science museum to have ever visited (Trinity Dublin Science Museum is a decent runner up). Interactive activities throughout make it so enjoyable for kids and adults. We visited the Birthday planetarium experience which was pretty cool but not an essential recommendation. I was impressed with how well complex concepts were explained and how they actively encourage people to think and contribute to the ideas. We spent about 3 hours in the museum, and then pottered around the vicinity, which is also beautiful. Highly recommend!
  • It is a wonderful museum with lots of interactive exhibits. Level 5 has more conceptual exhibits while level 3 has the hands on exhibits. Kids can be entertained there as the games are kid friendly. Make sure to watch the Ashimo robot show as it is amazing what the robot can do. If you only speak English, you aren't out of luck. They have lots of their stuff in English and you can use Google Translate to understand the rest. They also have some headphones on level 3 to watch the Geo show that do the commentary in English. Lastly, the restaurant only takes Japanese credit cards and cash, so make sure to bring some yen along with you if you want to eat. The front kiosk does take international credit cards, Japanese credit cards, and cash.
  • Attended Mutek here and had a super fun time. The layout of the space and general vibe was very conducive for an experimental electronic music show. As an event space it was very enjoyable and fairly convenient to get to by train then monorail.
