  • The Sanada-Maru fan was unbearable. History of the Sanada family retainers of the Takeda around from Sekigahara, Osaka summer teams. That letter and the other, Hideyoshi and Ieyasu, Uesugi, battle maps, weapons, etc. Buy the toy of Sanada-Maru.

  • 歷史博物館是出國一定要拜訪的,可以了解當地的歷史。主要講的都是難波宮的相關歷史跟文物。看到當時 的衣物真的不像現在所習慣看的日本文物,很有唐風。 
  • Located on the NHK building located in front of the Osaka Castle. Exhibition story, gorgeous, feel the intentions, if there is a free admission pass amazing Osaka. Not to be missed * top views overlooking Osaka Castle has a wide angle.

  • a bit too much money for seeing models and paintings. Don't think you need to visit this place to enjoy Osaka. Most of the stuff you can already see in wikipedia, but if you like trying out traditional japanese outfits and seeing miniature models depicting historical records of Osaka itself, go ahead. Also if you go here first instead of the Osaka castle, they will get you a set menu for the museum ticket AND the Osaka castle ticket in a pretty big discount.
  • Great job for its display, telling the history of Osaka. Recommend! You can buy combined ticket (for Osaka castle and Odaka Museum if History) in discounted price.
  • The view from the top is amazing. You can see entire Osaka castle ground.
  • A place worth visiting if you are using the Osaka Amazing Pass.
  • You can wear kimono for free at this museum.
