“A good day out”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

A good place to visit, but very little English around the venue. We went to the planetarium, but were made fully aware that the sound would only be in japanese

Reviewed 3 April 2014

I visited this mega attraction place in Japan recently during my trip to Nagoya Japan. It was really a cherishable tech. trip as one can see and many innovative things there. Really Japanese are technically very much sound and master mind of zero defect technology. I recommend this place for all who visit Nagoya japan

“One of the best museums I've been to with interesting sights and fun activities !”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

The enormous dome-shaped planetarium stands out from the outside view of the whole museum . When I went there , there were one exhibition going on , which is the chocolate exhibition . I bought the ticket that includes the planetarium , the science museum and the chocolate exhibition . The queue was long tho. I was super impressed by the science museum itself , cool things to check out , great for kids and adults too! I love the science museum , but I felt that the planetarium wasn't good enough . First of all, I blame myself for not understanding Japanese language well, second , although the theater was beautiful and really breathtaking ( when the whole semi-circular screen was filled with stars and constellations ! ) , but boy it was bored as hell ! I went with a group of 7 (that doesn't understand Japanese language well ) , all of us were asleep !! But no regrets ! Just we hope that they provide bilingual explanations , as there were lots of foreigners . Regarding the chocolate exhibition , it was a temporary exhibition , I thought the exhibition was not bad , the last part of the exhibition shows art works made of chocolates ( which includes , the cleopatra, a dinosaur , a train and so on ... ). Overall , I had a great experience here !

“Pretty cool! but not much English.”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

I went with my toddler children during a very cold winter in Nagoya.
It was great to find a place where the little ones could play inside + a very educational visit.
I only wish they had more English explanation.
There were many activities that could have been perfect if they had few English speaker staff (or at least English signs.
Overall: Very nice!!!... I could go again if I am in Nagoya next time!
