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.

We got our tickets while visiting the Castle, combo was cheaper that way. Be conscious of where the museum is while visiting the castle and plan your exit of the castle accordingly to minimize the walk. The museum is nice, with some good displays, but it's not the deepest dive into history. We got through there within an hour easily. It was a nice break from the castle since there were far less visitors here and we could cool down for a bit while learning a few things. Nice view of the city from 10 tall stories high.

I particularly enjoyed this museum after having lived in Osaka for three years. Many of the local and historical references are richer if you know the places in the modern day. For tourists the biggest draw will probably be the spectacular view from the 10th floor of Osaka castle with the business park towers as backdrop. Certainly wasn’t crowded when I was there. English signs and audio guide available. Nice models of historical neighborhoods.

Bundle your castle and museum ticket to save a bit of cash as an initial tip!
This museum is super immersive and you travel from the upper floors, through a chronological journey to the lower floors and then exit. It’s an amazing trip through the history of Osaka and japan and highly recommend as it complements the castle experience perfectly

Great little museum! Definitely check it out before you explore Osaka as you get a bigger sense of what this city has always been, a thriving metropolis. English language interpretations are not available for every aspect of every exhibit but those that exist are helpful for foreigners.
