A science show is held three times a day (in Japanese only). Apart from the exhibits, the Science Museum also has a planetarium with multiple daily shows and an Omnimax where one can watch films over the weekend.

Osaka Science Museum, Osaka Reviews
Interesting museum if science. Similar to the Science and Industry museum in Chicago. Cheap and with easy access. Nevertheless, only Japanese is the language available for all the information and attractions. So keep that in mind.
Many fun and educational demonstrations for all sorts of space, chemistry, physics, electricity etc. related topics. Absolutely worth the ~¥300 entry. Did not try the planetarium as it wasn't available until 2pm, perhaps because the school groups booked it. The ~5 school groups made the visit extremely lively.
Definitely one of the best science museums I’ve been to and would definitely recommend for both kids and adults. On top of having a lot of hands-on interactive learning for kids, there’s a lot of exhibits about modern scientific discoveries. The vast majority of the museum is in Japanese, however the English speaking staff happily explains exhibits and answers questions. The 4 floors were definitely worth the ¥600
great place to bring your kid to learn about technology. there are many floors of science and technology to explore including space technology. not much of robotics as compared to other science museum I have visited in Japan. still a great place to visit despite exhibits are primarily explained in Japanese.
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!
