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

  • An interesting museum situated beside the great Osaka Castle and nestled within the NHK building... The first moment you stepped into the place was you’ll be awe-struck with the huge globular glass roof... The display was really well managed as it guides you the journey of Osaka since the middle age period

  • A modern, carefully designed series of exhibits laid out very sensibly. Some rooms are truly dramatic. I'd have given five stars if more of the OMoH's exhibits were captioned for non-Japanese speakers.

  • Very interesting. Displays are lively and interactive. They have video presentations that bring up the olden times. A very different approach to museum displays

  • Very nice museum detailing the history of Osaka via artefacts and dioramas. There are also really great views of Osaka since the museum is on the 7-10th floor. The audio guide is a must for non-Japanese speakers. There are lockers for storing bags and jackets.

  • It was interesting. Just wished they had more variety of selection. I loved playing the game of collecting the stamps here.
