A slightly different take on science museums, in that it encourages you to think about the future and how we might shape it or want it to be. Well laid out and offering lots of interactive displays in various areas of science - space, medicine,...More

Very interesting for people who are interested in robots. There is a show with Asimo the Honda robot. Be aware the many attractions are to be paid in addition to the entry fee which gives access only to a few attractions.

Value for money as school age kids were admitted free. The sphere (earth) was amazing. The kids as well as the adults enjoyed looking at 'earth' from a different perspective. 'Asimo' was fascinating to watch. Amazing to watch what technology is capable of. All the...More

This museum was brilliant, however first of all I must note it closes at 5:30pm, so give yourself plenty of time. There is so much interesting things to do at this museum, and I highly recommend it. It is a bit out of the way,...More

ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find
restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The
