    Over the weekend came in the staff. If only Science Museum admission and even kindergarten children enjoyed. Such facilities would be helpful in the hot summer. Is good and close to train station and Metro. I think offers a wide range of ages, and many elementary school students.

    Go to the Planetarium, I saw the exhibit. Different from the Planetarium was beautiful, but look at the star full time and receive an explanation of Zodiac. With the majority of the time theme each screened footage was edited and thought whether or not be satisfied depending on the theme. I have seen the exhibits in the Science Museum. To play while learning the child was just a good feeling. By the way Planetarium and Science Centre is included.

    A great museum filled with so much hands on experiments! I felt like a child again running through each section wondering what I could play with and learn from. However, it wasn't a tourist friendly place as the explanations didn't have an English section. Luckily I learn from doing than from reading. A very fun and amusing place to take your children or to enjoy by yourself or with a partner.

    Many hands on core Physics examples. I would recommend for both university level students and young kids. Best place to review your Physics knowledge!

    Organized. Great staff. I wish there was more English translation. Some exhibits could not be used.

    If you have kids, it will be the best place to explore to your family. Even there wasnot enough english explanations i saw many great stuffs; how electric stations work, what is dna, how much i will weigh in Mars or Jupiter...etc. and the price is 400yen as a 2017 year.

    3 floor full of science. Good for the kids and adult too, even there are so many kids rather than adult. Love its planetarium hall, spectacular wide view and great animation, the chair is also comfy. Unfortunately they didnt provide any english information both for exhibition or the planet hall.

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.
