  • Rainy day drive tour, I went Tsukuba Expo Center in. You could enjoy the day the son of grade 2. Guests can enjoy should allow Planetarium, 3D Theater and event participation. I think it may be reserved in advance reservation event so you can get the tickets you want to see the Planetarium and Theater at the same time opening the. Facilities are somewhat Showa era feel. My son, picks up about the elementary school lower grades, I think, is good enough.

  • The purpose of this is Doraemon's Planetarium. You have to watch the cosmic mystery adventure 3. This is a facility operated by the Foundation and once held the Tsukuba Expo location. That mean, came to visit for the first time in 30 years.

  • Robots seen in various places recently, and can converse with humans was from a long time ago. I think at this price, it is worth a look.

  • 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.
