Osaka Science Museum, Osaka Reviews

  • There are 4 floors with different theme in each floor. Perfect place for family to spend time in. If you really want to enjoy each and everything in the museum, I suggest to allocate at least half an hour to one hour for each floor. Love the experience. It's included in Osaka Amazing pass!

  • It was surprisingly very entertaining and delightful experience on a very rainy and windy day in Osaka City. Great day activity for both families and couples alike. A lot of Japanese people had gone there with their dates. Some of the science experiments require you to be two people. Three floors of interactive and educating science stuff. Most explanations and descriptions are in Japanese so perhaps not the best if you don't know any Japanese or don't really understand science. They are only open until 5pm so male sure you come about two hours before if you really want to read and experience most of the stuff in there without rushing through it. Bring your university ID with you if you study in the University.

  • Right place to explore and experience science with fun learning tools. Children (& even adults) can enjoy this place. It has planetarium that show a movies several times a day. It is located in front of Osaka Museum of Art.

  • A fun place for all those who enjoy Science and like to understand how every day things work. There is more value in this if you enter using a one-day or 2 day pass. We completed this place in 40 minutes, but that was towards closing. So I'm guessing average time spent here should be around 40-60 minutes.

  • Get your hands on science! Only direct encounter can make people to better understand how the things work. And this museum is the place for it. I recommend to spend at least 2 hours for exhibition and another 45 mins for planetarium (in Japanese but the views are stunning even without understanding the language).
