Osaka Museum Of History - Review

Located across from the moat of the Osaka Castle Park, the modern style museum building has some great views of the castle. The exhibits inside explore Osaka's evolution - cultural, social, technological - from ancient to modern times. Each floor is themed after a specific period in the city's 1400 year old history. Highlights include a miniature recreations of the Naniwanomiya Palace and shopping arcades during the Showa Period. The journey from bottom to top is utterly fascinating. The lower floors have a restaurant and shop.

Osaka Museum Of History, Osaka Reviews

  • I loved this museum! There were so many replicas from various periods in history which made it a lot of fun to walk around. Most of the sets were scaled down but there were some life-sized ones to walk through

  • Must-see museum in Osaka. Even for people who isn't interested in history. Many models and reconstructions to enjoy. Museum staff know English and trying to be helpful as much as possible.

  • It is a modern museum. The staff will give a guide paper in various languages to visitor at the entrance. At the highest floor, which is 10th floor, we can see a lot of Naniwa period. There are statues in each floors that show how people dress at the period. At the sixth floor (if I am not mistaken) there is fun puzzle games that have historical lesson. Visitors can also view Osaka Castle and Osaka City from the window next to escalator. If you plan to visit both Osaka Castle and Museum, I recommend you to buy combo ticket for 900 JPY, which is cheaper than separated entrance tickets.

  • Do not expect a complete museum on Japanese history, the museum is on Osaka. However, it is well stocked with period displays and models. The museum provides half a day's worth of content. Located in a skyscraper, it has good views of the surrounding land as well.

  • Offers a fair amount of information about the city of Osaka from ancient times to modern. As with most Japanese museums, it's most beneficial to get the audio guide, as non-Japanese descriptions will be short or nonexistent. Overall a great museum located right beside Osaka Castle, which you can get a cheaper combined entry ticket for the two.
