Osaka Museum Of History, Osaka Reviews - Write a Review

  • Excellent way to learn about the history of Osaka. As you progress through each floor, you're treated to a nice view of Osaka Castle. There are enough hands-on exhibits to keep young kids occupied. Ties in nicely with a visit to Osaka Castle Park.

  • Neat museum of Japanese history. I also saw some folks getting pictures with traditional Japanese clothing. You can see Osaka Castle from the escalator on the 10 floor from here too. It was free when we came here on a Saturday.

  • I usually put museum as the last resort of sunny days. Though this museum could lead to a thorough view of Osaka's history, as tourist your first target should still be the beautiful Osaka castle just a few hundred meters away

  • A museum near Osaka Castle. Very informative, there was English explanation for every exhibit. The staff were friendly and helpful, a staff even bothered to explain feudal japanese currency system individually.

  • Really interesting museum, with booklets and signs on several languages available. Also has a great view of the nearby Osaka Castle for great photos.
