    I stopped by when I went to Odaiba. Lots of stuff or at the entrance to humanoid robots, quiz, draws the child's interests. Breakfast was crowded during a visit to the staff.

    I went to Disney's art exhibition. Early history of Disney Animation transition in current illustrations and content, is impressive enough. Making detailed calculations unique animation technique the subtlety of the original drawing of the early era, the title of the exhibition of art magic infuse life was. So why the rating is 1?, is it written than other bad management. A delicate pencil drawings, color overlay, explanatory text, art course carefully watching and reading. Column so it will be prompted with the "stop and proceed", and watch the play. So just read commentary or is not ornamental painting itself. But here came to see his pictures. Giving video to one technology "see same thing there outside the venue because" it announced. No, bought a ticket for what? It would be inconceivable to those outside the venue to watch. You know that was a way to avoid crowds out money would think that the people who come to watch? How to go from now. Exhibited works great. Undaunted by the voice of the person in charge, please come watch carefully. And another point. Toy shop not also have tickets to see the whole exhibition. Before entering the shop, three times the ticket check. Is someone enters and slips easily from the long line at the top of the column, check first check again, when you go to the shop three times for the final check. Moreover, distance to the second and final checks are only 2 metres have not moved in and hemmed in by the tape only? It was a surprise. Done so far, and some incorrect assumptions check feel, was extremely unpleasant. Who sent it, and careful. Tickets cannot be immediately and 並bemasenn columns. 並bemasenn column for a while because I was in the back of the bag.

    I love it here! If you are into science, or just someone who's trying to get a fresh perspective on the world, this is a good place to drop by. And the view going here is near the seaside so bonus points if you like the sea. Try to schedule your visit when there are exhibitions though to maximize your visit, since the trip here takes almost an hour.

    This is an OK museum, with a few informative exhibits. Not great if you don't read Japanese though, be warned. The huge globe in the middle is stunning.... But they've put tablets on some of the lounge chairs that are supposed to be interactive but often don't work, rarely work well, and never make any sense. So just sit and relax.

    Who said museums are boring? This place could be from the future! Most displays/installations are interactive and fun. Best part was getting to meet Asimov. Even though he has been around more than a decade, it was thrilling to see Asimov make those moves.

    The best museum I've ever visited, I loved it, it explains in a easy way a lot of things and you can also find information of the last innovations in a easy and understandable way. Also, the show of ASIMO is very good. Very recommended.

    Asimo was really cool, high school students loved him too. Also, the humanoid conversation experience was a lot of fun. Even though you're just talking to someone else while they're controlling the humanoid, it feels like you're talking to the robot. Feels crazy
