  • At about a very short distance from the railway station, the exhibits in the museum are many and diverse, but they are slightly present, and there are some exhibits and topics that are worth studying and learning.

  • Illusion works outside the building until the inside exhibits from the favourite was the old feeling, but overall good ^ ^ science principles to understand good experience are my water law. (Angular momentum conservation, etc) the best periodic table of the elements displayed in the upstairs to look at the made in Japan became aware of the fact that atoms are in. .. Next to the elements (below?) can be seen on the flag of the country that made ... By the way, here are the Korean flag ㅠ ㅠ anyway science will satisfy your favorite elementary school students think the son wanted to go again, I cry ~

  • I went to see the Planetarium. To time's only Planetarium is 600 yen, child-friendly setting for family had bought tickets one hour after. Because there was a time, pay 400 Yen, visited the Science Museum. There came on a school trip when I was a kid I remember most content has changed and the staff were very helpful. After the Planetarium show ticket stub, and again visited the rest of the Museum.

  • Great little museum! Lots of hands-on activities, many of the displays have English translations, good place to bring your kids. The layout of the museum presents a very clear path that proceeds in a pretty logical order. An enjoyable hour or two.
  • Prepare to spend some time. Lots of interesting to see and test. My kids enjoy themselves very much. Saw lots of school children on a field day outing.
  • Very nice place to learn about scientific subjects. Interactive exhibitions and fun experiments with liquid nitrogen. Some English translations are available, but I guess it's even more fun if you are able to speak Japanese.
  • Great museum for kids and adults alike. Lots of interactive activities to showcase the many weird and wonderful aspects of science. Not too many stations have an English translation however the concepts are easy to grasp and explain to your kids.
  • This was a very well planned place! The bottom floor has a lot of hands on electricity stuff.
