There is a part on the universe and the creation of the world which is very beautiful with projections on the walls and interactive tools, also to see 3D. Some things are a bit "unusual" for a museum on the natural sciences. To do in bad weather, or after a stroll in Ueno Park.show original
Dinosaur borns are a magnet for kids. This place has many fossils compared to most of the Natural history museums in US and its free for kids!
Very modern and well made museum with lots of information and interactive games for kids. Entrance fee for adults 620 Yen. Audio guide 310 yen. I found don't speak japanese get the English audio guide as most descriptions are only in japanese
Great museum. Most of the facts and details are in japanese of course, however there is a lot in english and tons of hands-on science learning tools for kids, even adults.
Recently built museum, clean and tidy. Kids will love it here :-) Price is very very good compared to Science Museums in the USA. These museums and parks in these areas depend a lot on donations that can be placed in statues throughout these parks and museums.
A very big museum but nothing is written in english. You can just see the things but not know its history.
We really liked this big museum. So big that we didn't see the whole thing. They have a spherical theatre, which was interesting even though all in Japanese. The display showing how the world has changed since the creation of the universe right through to today was quite good and helped our kids understand it all.
