If you want to see Astroboy and Ultraman you have to pay 700¥ for it. Its a 1500 steps walk from the train station. They have free stamps where you can put on a pad as souvenir.

If you are very fond of manga, the museum is worth a detour, otherwise not. Especially harms the confrontation with the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka. Anyway, it is at walking distance from Takarazuka railways stations (both JR and Kintetsu).
