  • 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.
