  • New traffic about 4 minutes walk from Telecom Center STA. on Yurikamome. The permanent exhibition admission: adults 680 yen, 18 years old and younger 210 yen. Children's day exhibition "Detective Conan science investigation exhibition" with my grandkids (1800 yen, elementary 1200) to are very crowded, and was waiting for 140 minutes. However, able to enjoy blame in about an hour. Permanent exhibition explores the world, future, global lead, was composed of three zones. Closed on Tuesdays.

  • The Japanese Science Museum is in Tokyo's Taiwan, but the museum's exhibits are not very interesting and disappointing. The ticket is very expensive, do not know Japanese will one head fog water.

  • I saw the permanent exhibition and temporary exhibitions. It was great fun for children (elementary school students and over) and adults alike. To those who aren't interested in science again may. Permanent 展内 international space station exhibit was popular.

  • This was my favourite science museum to have ever visited (Trinity Dublin Science Museum is a decent runner up). Interactive activities throughout make it so enjoyable for kids and adults. We visited the Birthday planetarium experience which was pretty cool but not an essential recommendation. I was impressed with how well complex concepts were explained and how they actively encourage people to think and contribute to the ideas. We spent about 3 hours in the museum, and then pottered around the vicinity, which is also beautiful. Highly recommend!
  • Worth visiting. Unfortunately, I didn't have much time to explore so I saw only few exhibitions, but the ones I saw were interesting. What I didn't see in any other technology museum, and what I appreciate a lot, is that museum staff is approaching you just to shed more light on exhibitions that you see and concepts behind it. I can also definitely recommend longer ride on Ubi-Cube. It was very nice to try it and have a trip around museum on it.
  • There after lots of amazing things to see and do here. Definitely recommend the full experience with the theater and all... Is you're a science nerd like me, it will be easy to spend the entire day here musing over the cool text on display.
  • Excellent museum for tech freaks. Asimo (the robot) is a must watch. The building is of 7 floors with the dome theatre on the 7th. The dome theatre is not that interesting . Well explained models and exhibits. The entry is free on Saturdays for 18 and under. It has a beautiful and scenic view around it. The museum also has a shop where you can purchase a few goodies. The space section is also quite interesting. The museum houses things related to technology, biology, cosmology, chemistry, etc. It’s a must watch for tech freaks .
  • Opening hours are quite short but man did the man from 9 dimensions rule!! A psychedelic masterpiece. Miraikan is huge, has loads of interactive stuff to see and push. While there are quite a lot of readable things, it's made that the senses are adequately stimulated. Loads of things that make a noise or have a screen attached to it. Might cause a sensory overload though.
