I wasn't as impressed as others seem to be with this museum. Would be more impressive with kids I think - there is alot of content geared towards the teaching of evolution and scientific methods for determining it. The 360 theatre was pretty impressive though.

This museum is what every natural history museum should aim towards. The museum is expansive, including very modern exhibitions along side more old-fashioned stuff. There's a lot of focus on great natural historians as well, but the shining star of this place is definitely the...More

The museum was small in size. However, very very high in educational in value. The guides were very helpful, unfortunately no translation available.

This museum always has great collaborative exhibits which we have always enjoyed. There are often rare and interesting displays so best to review what's on before you come.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping

I would send an email to the museum and see if they would work with you or have an answer. The museum was a great place to visit, and if you had a business meeting/party there you would all truly enjoy the experience.
