  • 2-year-old son was excited. Kind a lot of planes taking off from Narita Airport from the fifth-floor observation deck and restaurant on the 4th floor and meals while the airplane can be seen! Adults can enjoy because they are moving. Also enjoyed the exhibits outside the plane. It is because it actually fun. Of 0-year-old baby took a nursing room is prima facie. The elevator carriages.

  • And displays the history of the structure of an airplane engine and tires and aircraft can be easier to understand and learn. Also, I felt than Narita Airport activities, such as learning, as well as the plane is very good. You can make the plane to flying in a fifth-floor observation deck I think according to the date and time information in real time live show fun.

  • Museum than overseas aviation Science Museum and exhibits are feeling a bit pricy, but including Guide and simulation experience. So rare ATC staff in the Tower on the top floor and that you can feel like the air traffic controllers. Outdoor display too many aircraft, such as the airplane YS11 got happy. There is a Highway bus from Tokyo station is surprisingly convenient access.

  • Above average museum just off the Narita airport but need to take a bus or taxi to from the airport. Will take about an hour to go through the museum. Deck five provides pretty good view of one of the two runways of Narita. Outdoor area has a few more smaller helicopter and airplanes displayed, including the pretty YS-11 aircraft. Worth a visit if you are a plane enthusiast !
  • Very nice place, good for small kids, have a flight simulator, the entrance fee is cheap (200yen), though you will need to pay to use the attractions.
  • If you love aircraft, it is was fabulous place for you. They hold garage sale of air craft goods for two times per year, Don't miss it.
  • A great aviation display of retired planes used in Japan! Awesome fun for the little (& big) kids to jump in & have a go at the controls!
  • Check out the view overseeing the cargo apron.
