  • Just unbelievably good just to go around if you have a very interesting place, but still I think the children. Lots of kids like kids first. If you are not interested in what adults feel like not even though grown unbelievably. Fun and exciting. Experience a lot of things you can do

  • If you have children and run of Universal/aquarium fun stuff to entertain them, try this museum. You pay only Y400 and can spend 2-3 hours. My daughter didn't want to go, but she ended up enjoying her...  more »
  • Visit on a weekend afternoon. Exhibit Center admission is adult 400 Yen, junior high school students or younger free (charges apply for the Planetarium). Matrix 1 f 4th floor exhibit is swarming in front of popular children a few but enough, not very comfortable. 1st floor is perfect for exhibition centered on Physics and space content and overall better understanding of the science junior high school students from the upper grades of elementary school Science Museum Science show venues, including chemical contents, 4 F relating to power generation, content to experience the familiar wonder seems to be 2nd floor low grade for grade 3 F. I think it's of course great fun for adults children's science show. Enough at all in half a day depending on the crowded but if experience all exhibits and is unlikely. It seems as even though plenty of time to visit. In addition, B1F large Planetarium (sold separately) seems popular, was almost full. Concert begins 10 minutes ago you can enter, but 10 minutes ago and matrix already, I was surprised. I think it seats in the rear central area overlooking the whole without suffering had come to know was sitting in the front seat, but looks good.

  • 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.
