Also known as Miraikan, this science museum in Odaiba is a high-tech showcase of Japan's cutting-edge technology. The 7-story building houses interactive exhibits in the fields of space technology, life science, robotics, etc., with a variety of hand-on activities catering to children and adults alike. The 3D image theater on the 6th floor features programs exploring the beginning and full expanse of the universe.

Entering the museum, the first thing you notice is a giant 'geo-cosmos' globe in the atrium, representing the Earth with 1 million LED light bulbs to look like a floating, spherical video display. Other popular highlights include the demonstration of the humanoid and baby seal robots, virtual-reality rides to explore into space, and the life-size sections of an space station and a deep-sea submarine.

The museum is so huge that a half day is not enough to see all the exhibits. After this museum, enjoy a dip in Oedo Onsen Monogatari or watch a beautiful sunset near the Rainbow Bridge.

Very good for children, and adults too. Spare at least 2 hours. Mind the timetable of certain attractions, like the Gizmo robot presentation and the cinema like video on the top floor. Poor restaurant on the top floor.

New normal due to covid-19. Staff are very deilgent in cleaning any interactive displays. They are rigid with social distance within dome performance. Social separation (2 seats apart) are required between mother and daughter (under 6 yrs old).

Very interesting exhibition. However, i would recommend for kids from school age only. While there are some activities that are appropriate for younger kids, too, these kids will not understand the true scope. The 3d movie theater is awesome. Overall good value for money.
