Osaka Museum of History4.0
The Osaka Museum of History is located just across the street from Osaka Castle. The exhibits spread over 4 floors at the top of a 13-story building, and you can get excellent views of Osaka Caslte.
Visitors first take the elevator to the top floor and then follow the route down, from a display of Naniwa Palace when Osaka was Japan's first capital in the 7th century, to exhibits on the city's shopping arcades in the early 20th century. The exhibits are visually arranged dioramas. Make sure to get the audio guide as English explanation is sparse.

I loved learning about the history of Japan in this over 7 floor museum. Each floor spoke about a different time and era of Japan and it felt like you were actually travelling through time as you made your way down each level. I especially loved the small models they had of the imperial palaces as well as the old towns and houses which depicted how the people used to live. Some of the artworks and clothing and artifacts were also preserved from at least a hundred years ago. If you love learning about Japanese history this is a fantastic place to go to. I had an amazing start to the day at the museum before making my way to the Osaka castle.

A very interesting exhibition on the history of Osaka was in the main floor and is attached to a gorgeous example of Euro-Japanese architecture. A fairly substantial number of good quality restaurants also exist within the building and easy walking distance.

Good value for money with about 2 hours of exhibits to walk through if you don't rush it. Ammenties are excellent and the staff were very enthusiastic to help. We had a memorable moment with the town centre diorama and an elderly guide who described interesting and quirky bits of the scene that might have escaped first notice. Try to spot all 7 cats! More english translations would make this even better.
