National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation(Miraikan)4.8
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 interesting experience. Got to see a wide range of science related exhibitions. Definite go if you're into science or even if you're just curious about it. Some parts were too much science for me but some definitely were thought provoking and very interesting for me. There's lots of interactive ways to learn about each exhibit which I appreciated.

Science museum that focus on future science development and issues. These are more appreciated by teenagers rather kids. However, the robot demonstration is a highlight and suitable to all ages. Note that most of the display is in Japanese but the staff are very helpful and can speak simple English.

Very good place for both kids and grown-ups. Lots of interesting exhibition. The robot show is good. One of the movie showing was "The Man from the 9 Dimensions" and is quite hard for the kids (and me), but is fun to watch nonetheless.

Affordable museum with great exhibitions and friendly staffs. This is a must visit museum for those who love technology and what the modern world would be look like in the near future. As well as the history of tech. Please consider the time of the robot showing performance.

Unlike most museums that overwhelm with relics and small plaques of tiny text this one has a more experience based approach; guiding the user through interactive exhibits to provide a deeper understanding of the complex issues facing not just Japan, but the world today. You will leave with more than just interesting facts!
