Though there are a fair amount of interactive displays, the science being demonstrated is way beyond that accessible to children. The better suited demographic would be high-school students and above. The 3D presentation we saw (The Theory of Everything) is well worth the extra charge....More

Leave enough time to do this place properly, especially if you include the special ninja exhibition. We got here at about 11am with our 3 year old (& 6 month old baby) and left at 3.30pm after only skimming the surface of what was on...More

My kids (10 and 13) really enjoyed this because it's interactive. The special Ninja area has both historical info as well as a Ninja training ground (walking softly, etc.). Located in close proximity to Panasonic Center so you can do both in a day easily....More

This place is located in Odaiba, a bit far from Tokyo but it's manageable with the Yurikamome train line. The design of this building is really futuristic, that's one thing I immediately noticed from outside. Once you're inside, you can browse through all the exhibitions...More

We arrived from USA a few hours before our hotel's check in time. Our hotel was in Daiba, so we literally stumbled on this museum. What a great find! Definitely one of the best science/technology museums I've been to. It reminds me of the Exploratorium...More

This museum wasn't really on my list coming to Tokyo, but now I've been there, I would recommend anyone slightly interested in technology to go there. Humanoid robots, the newest facts about medical science and some kind of replica of a space station. The current...More

Japan knows its science. Fun with technology. Had a world's fair vibe-very futuristic. The main exhibits are on the 3rd and 5th floors. The 5th floor also has a coffee/snack bar area. We went here as part of a day-long tour to different places and...More

This place fell way short of my expectations. The building is grand, but the exhibits are outdated and dull. There is too much reading, and the writing style is dry and scientific, like a textbook, and often hard to understand (at least the English explanations)....More

Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris
wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of
shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a
hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is
very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has
ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find
restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The
neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much
