Kids Plaza Osaka, Osaka

4.3
#4 of 40 in Museums in Osaka
Take the kids to Kids Plaza Osaka, a museum aimed squarely at children, helping them learn through play. Across five themed floors, the museum has kids climbing on surreal structures designed by Austrian architect Friedensreich Hundertwasse, teaching to play weird and wonderful musical instruments from around the world, or becoming police or postal workers in the make-believe town on the fourth floor. You can find plenty more activities on site, and although there is no cafeteria, you're welcome to bring a packed lunch, or can come and go as you please during the visit by showing your pass. For Kids Plaza Osaka and beyond, use our Osaka road trip planning site to get the most from your Osaka vacation.

  • Because of bringing the children, so went here. Mostly Japanese children. There are a lot of things to play, and it's mostly all kinds of experience. Daily life, Popular science, every aspect. Very interesting.

  • Lovely kids museum with a huge indoor playground (concrete floor without rubber mat and no ball pits) but big enough to run about. There are various sections such as science, nature, cultural, music ,...  more »
  • If you are travelling with young kids to Osaka, Kids Plaza is a must. There's tons of learning, sensory, dress up and play activities all under one roof. Staff sometimes spoke a bit of English or none...  more »

  • My daughter loves this place. It is fun for kids. Not only for play but also for they can learn something from most of the activities. It is really worth to go.
  • I would describe this place is a must go in Osaka when you are travelling with kids above 3 years old. Lots of simple but interesting scientific, cultural and role play activities for kids which are NOT using computers. Can spend a whole day here, while good restaurants nearby.
  • A fun playground of sorts, and not too expensive to enter. The facilities get a little crowded, and obviously a lot of the tasks are geared toward Japanese-speaking children, however there is enough to occupy kids for an entire afternoon. I would suggest going with elementary aged and older children, as most of the tasks and play areas are more comfortable for kids who can function without constant parental supervision. One downside is there isn't much to eat inside, so either pack your own meal or come for the afternoon.
  • 5 store building for kids activity. Scientific games, role playing activity and creative play. My 5 year old daughter spent whole day there and ask to go there again
  • Nice place to spend the day. Too many kids makes it impossible to enjoy everything though.

Where to stay in Osaka

The majority of Osaka's moderate and expensive accommodations concentrate in the districts of Umeda, Kyobashi, Namba, and Shin-Osaka. Base your stay in or near Minami neighborhood for proximity to a wide selection of shopping and dining options. For quick access to long-distance transportation to other cities and areas, look for hotels in Kita district. Many backpackers prefer the budget options in the Tennoji area, where the quality of rooms and prices vary wildly--call or check websites of specific establishments before you make reservations.
