I was expecting a much better museum about technology in an advanced country like Japan, but I was very disappointed with this place. The exhibits are outdated at best. All I can really say for it is that it wasn't crowded when I visited because it was raining. I can imagine that it would be unbearable on a busy day. As it was, the hands-on exhibits were overrun with children pushing buttons with no clue what the point is.
The live demonstrations are only scheduled a couple of times a day and as far as I could tell there is no way to know what that schedule is before you arrive. Most of the huge building is just empty space. The big floating video orb is interesting, but what's the point? I sure couldn't figure it out. And, I've seen more advanced versions of this same idea elsewhere.
We were so bored that we left after about an hour. I usually love this sort of museum, but this one is a total waste of time. There are many malls and other attractions in the area that would at least be fun rather than using up an hour of your life you'll never get back. Really, skip this and do anything else. It is a nice building, but there's nothing in it you couldn't have seen ten years ago.
