Went through the science museum in 2hrs. Had lots of experiments to try and interesting facts to learn. Honestly, when I was in school 30 years ago I was taught aluminium wasn't affected by magnets. The experiments there proved otherwise! Cheap day out.

The contents covered in the museum might be informative and interesting, but all the words there are in Japanese. Apart from the fourth floor, where you can really find something to touch or move or look at, on the other floors you won't discover anything....More
