  • Try to avoid visiting this museum in Feb. You can only see a few part of the whole museum. Free admission for those who have Osaka Pass  more »
  • Here is just a fish tank and various. If you're lucky food, you can also experience. Pay is on the second floor, enjoy nature, the exhibition of Kishiwada. Many events are held by time, observation of the crepe looking for monsters and sea creatures are held frequently.

  • Museum of natural history in the various daily but cannot see such exhibits are seen. Overseas, compared to Brobdingnagian scale of natural history museum and exhibition of what I think, but vice versa compact? Might be good at. But don't look carefully, and it indeed takes time. I think both in children and in adults.

  • This museum reminds me more of a children's museum. The displays are fairly simple and mostly consist of bugs. There is some English near the large entrances for the exhibits, but luckily, the Japanese used in the inside is easy enough to understand. This is a great museum if you have children with you. They have more than a few hands-on displays. For adults, I think you're better off passing on it.
  • Really enjoy the museum. If yr kids love dinosaur, this the place. Small but interesting. Lovely garden outside.
  • Not as big as I expected but they took my Canadian student card for the discount and the gardens were really nice.
  • The museum is dated and small if compared to natural history museums of other international cities. Exhibition is in Japanese only. If English translation were provided, we might have appreciated it more.
  • Nice place for kids and garden is beautiful

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.
