Nagoya City Science Museum, Nagoya-shi Reviews - Write a Review

  • Aside from the language barriers the exhibition is great. A few stands out including the tornado, Tesla coils and water structures. Did not have a chance to go into the sub-zero room.

  • So much fun!! Now this is a great family museum. There was so much to do. My daughter loved it. But it was PACKED. If you are a solo traveler....this may not be for you or go on a day when school is in session. We only bought the museum ticket (the cheapest option) and we spent ALL afternoon there. There were tons of hands on activities and shows. If you brought your kid's to Nagoya this is a must see

  • Large, well-organized science museum. exhibits and hands-on activities for kids of different ages, and adults. Giant Planetarium is the top attraction for adults and older kids. Awesome.

  • Great place for Interactive learning for kids, young people and even adults. Lots of fun things to do there. English pamphlets available at front desk.

  • A really cool place, it's soo huge that less than 2-3 hours won't work. And that is while taking into consideration that nothing but the titles are written in english, it's all in japanese.
