  • Nakanoshima Island international art museum on the South side at the Osaka Science Museum. Learning facilities of the hands-on Science Exhibition Center donated to Osaka, Kansai Electric power company. Can learn and experience the science exhibition using the escalators in the elevator on the fourth floor from up there is central stairwell and corridor. Themes in the electrical Center elementary and middle school students. 3D movies will be screened according to the various titles as Omnimax and Planetarium can savor one coin manufactured by Minolta uniaxial Planetarium and Omnimax's powerful 3D movie. Parking is also widespread and food, where you can enjoy all day long. Hall was so comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Next to the Museum of art and the combination process is a bit heavy, so pay attention.

  • 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.
