  • 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.
  • There was a Disney and robotics exhibition when we were here. The Disney one had original sketches and concept arts of Disney characters. Very nice. The robotics/science/innovation exhibition was very cool. Talked to robots. Also a demo of Asimo was given.
  • The standard exhibitions are great, even if you don't know Japanese. The special exhibitions are also nice. If you plan to see the special and the regular exhibitions it could be an all day trip.
  • Don't waste your time. The museum might have been a hit 20 years ago, but does not show any new innovation or forward looking technology. It seems as if it is a time capsule of what was amazing and futuristic 20 years ago. Also the area around is empty and it is a long train ride from central Tokyo.
  • Hard to say who is the target audience. Many difficult concepts roughly explained. Not many exhibits, poorly organized. I don't think anyone can learn anything in this 'museum'. Only the robot is worth seeing.
