Wondering where to take your kids while in Hiroshima? Well, head over to the Children’s Museum and watch your kids have a time of their life! The museum opened in 1980 and apart from the actual museum, it also has a planetarium and a library. There are two floors of activities for kids to enjoy while learning about science. At the science discovery area, kids learn about gravity, electric currents, train engines and a lot more. There is a maze that kids can climb through and access the second floor or gleefully slide down a slide at to get back to the first floor. The best part? It is free!
- Planetarium entry for Adults: ¥500

- Planetarium hosts 4 shows from Tuesdays to Fridays and 5 shows on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

Very engaging two-story museum. There is a climbing area where kids can play and climb through a series of tunnels to the second floor. Everything is hands on so your kids will enjoy trying all the experiments. There is a steam train outside that kids can climb. The museum is free and the Planetarium is very reasonably priced.
This remains one of my favourite museums with the balance of technology, testimony and artefacts. Unfortunately, they were undertaking significant upgrades during my visit but I look forward to visiting again.
The children's maze is great for the kids to explore!
Absolutely awesome. My 4 yo daughter loved it
Good to spend an hour or two with kids. Free entrance. Planetarium / movies are being charged for and are Japanese language only.
