like many science oriented museums, this place can often be an earful, especially on rainy weekend-holidays. However, it is an interesting and fun place for children, especially of elementary school age, who can also get guidance from helpful staff. Parents have a good science library (Japanese language mostly) to update their knowledge, as there are confy chairs on every floor. Bringing your own lunch saves time, which flies quickly in such an environment. We will surely visit again, but on a weekday!
