  • If you like ASIMO and robotic science, you can't miss this museum. It has several floors and you can choose between permanent exhibitions and itinerants.

  • In October of this year, there was a lot of rain, so it was difficult to do something outdoors on holidays, so when I wanted to go there in March, I went to the Science Miraikan, which was postponed because the planetarium was under renovation. The permanent exhibition was not so, but the mammoth exhibition of the special exhibition was crowded. The contents of the planetarium were a little difficult for me, so it seemed to be more difficult for children in the fourth grade of elementary school. The exhibition is good not only to see, but also to experience a lot, but I think that there were quite a few things that were not so in line. The restaurant had a small menu and the taste was reasonable, but I thought it would be nice to be able to drink soup stock.

  • It was really a fun experience to see the scientific development in Japan. It's basically for kids. Everything is explained in Japanese and English. So it is not difficult to understand. The best part was the Robot dance and the hanging globe. However, I feel considering the size of the museum, they can put some more scientific things as there was lot of dead space. Altogether it's a good place to visit when you are in Tokyo.
  • Good science museum, specially for kids. Although if you are looking for the Paris or Munich experience this is not the place. Advantage is that in one day you can have a pretty good broad number of topics to cover. Didn't stay longer than 4 hours so I can not judge food possibilities if I had to stay full day. Interesting open concept and exhibitions are interesting
