  • No such idea in more interesting exhibition exhibit reminded me of the Tsukuba Science Expo held in more than 30 years ago, so much was new medical challenges as well as for elementary school science, 2 F 1 F, but compared with the Expo at the time and after 30 years of progress, such as if the interest was not too bad. As the student went to the Tsukuba Expo in disappointment.

  • We spent 2 hours there on a weekday. I went there with my 2 young children and they loved the place a lot. There are lots of science experiments and activities for them to play around and there are a ...  more »
  • Went with a friend was interested in astronomy and space. From Tsukuba station in about 5 minutes so there is big orange rocket to the front of the building, pretty easy to find. It is interesting, read about the story of Tanabata, medical technology that exhibits the most child-friendly audience mostly parent-child or family could. Clarify in the commentary, such as space, it roughly went to see the film stars students resolve Planetarium in 11:30, Tanabata star, Scorpio and Saturn talked, it was fun. It is once again wanted to hear while watching a video of little felt in about 40 minutes, but somehow sad looks. So many exhibits like the toys may be boring for the adults, but kids are happy. And it wouldn't hurt to go if you're just exploring at Tsukuba we can be recommended for families with children, but also think about. Admission is pretty cheap children 210 Yen at 410 yen. Like sometimes doing events, workshops, restaurants and shops. Overall: you'll be funny science fun to the kids. Exhibition: children thought was good, but most screenings: see: cheap and easy and fun.

  • Excellent place for enjoying and learning about science. There is a superb planetarium, in one of the largest such domes in the world, where they show original planetarium programs (similar to imax but with educational focus) as well as special programs such as evening music concerts, etc. The original programs are also available to listen in English, with free rental earphone. There are many hands on exhibits to try. The 2nd floor has exhibits and mini movies relating to space exploration, deep sea submarine missions, etc. There is a rest/snack area and a small shop with interesting gifts and books. There is also an adjacent cafe with good food, drink bar option, and very fresh baked cakes and sweets. Great place to spend a day. For those who would like to visit often, there is an annual pass for a very reasonable price. It tends to be crowded on school holidays (but much less hassle than Tokyo.) Highly recommended for children/families and also adults who enjoy science and technology.
  • The hands-on activities for the children will no doubt inspire the student to take up science .
  • Great Place...You must bring the familiy....
  • a great science museum. Has a big discovery section for children and a planetarium. really liked my visit.
  • Kids can experience various hands on science activities. Relo Club members can get discount for entrance ticket as well as planetarium. Some equipment sets were not maintained/renewed.
