Osaka Science Museum, Osaka Reviews
This is a really solid science museum. Plenty of fun hands on activities for kids of all ages up to adult level. Also some very nice historical equipment. I loved the mechanical adding machines and some of the optics demos were quite good. It's not the most polished or modern museum but it is a really solid experience for most people. I was surprised to find English signage. Not much but it was nice when it was there for the exhibits that I didn't understand.
The displays came across as a little dates partly because they took is through the history of scientific discoveries and their concepts. However, science never gets old and we were intrigued by the interactive experience. Wish more displays were curated in English though. There were many young children with their parents enjoying an inquisitive and explorative time, which was charming to watch.
Museum is so so, spent 30 minutes to see "live show" good for children. Oh it starts at 2pm And came here for planetarium. Its in japanese.. cant understand much but i enjoy the stars.. beautiful!! Oh and you have to be there 10 minutes before planetarium show starts
One of the better science museums I’ve been to. Maybe not the newest in terms of technology inside, but there’s a lot of hands on things to try. Excellent for the kids. My 6 year old son loved it.
I loved it here! Fantastic exhibits and the guides were extremely pleasant and helpful.
