View an array of interactive exhibits, most of which are suitable for children to enjoy, or catch one of the daily science shows. You can pay a visit to the massive planetarium, but be aware that the audio is only in Japanese. Make your Nagoya itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • I went to the railroad museum that day, but it was too boring, and then we went to the Science Museum, and we were almost two to three in the afternoon. But it's about five o ' clock, so it's too short to stay. Our children have more hands than they can touch a meal, so it is very slow, not enough time to see ^^ advice to stay here for half a day

  • I'm interested in science, but because it's in the art Museum, it's a good idea! But there are two things, even if you don't know Japanese.

  • Aside from the language barriers the exhibition is great. A few stands out including the tornado, Tesla coils and water structures. Did not have a chance to go into the sub-zero room.
  • So much fun!! Now this is a great family museum. There was so much to do. My daughter loved it. But it was PACKED. If you are a solo traveler....this may not be for you or go on a day when school is in session. We only bought the museum ticket (the cheapest option) and we spent ALL afternoon there. There were tons of hands on activities and shows. If you brought your kid's to Nagoya this is a must see
  • Large, well-organized science museum. exhibits and hands-on activities for kids of different ages, and adults. Giant Planetarium is the top attraction for adults and older kids. Awesome.
  • Great place for Interactive learning for kids, young people and even adults. Lots of fun things to do there. English pamphlets available at front desk.
  • A really cool place, it's soo huge that less than 2-3 hours won't work. And that is while taking into consideration that nothing but the titles are written in english, it's all in japanese.

Where to stay in Nagoya

The central district, just south from the castle and its gardens, houses the bulk of accommodations in Nagoya. You'll find a good range of standard hotels, with onsite restaurants, simple rooms, and perhaps a pool in this area. Look slightly to the west, or closer to the castle,to find more luxurious accommodations. Across the surrounding residential areas, take a look close to the metro stations to find some of the most conveniently located, but budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses.
