This is a solid science museum that is most suitable for young children. The English translations are decent and there are good interactive exhibits. Children will enjoy seeing Asimo in action.

Decided to visit this museum because we love emerging technology and robots. Kind of disappointed that it does not have a full range of Japan robots like Toyota Kirobo Mini. If we were to plan the itinerary again, we would probably cater just 2-3 hours to catch just the Asimo and the discover-your-earth giant globe exhibits only.

This museum is so interactive and everything is thoughtfully created to inspire and involve people in the exhibits. We didn't do the whole thing, but there is enough in there to keep you thinking for weeks to come. The Asimo show is interesting, but it wasn't the best part of the day. The other exhibits get your mind thinking about... More

Miraikan is the Innovation center and museum. Asimo, the Robot kicking football, is the highlight of this museum. We have to sit down and wait 10 minutes but the show is not much fascinating. We expect a lot more than this. May be gymnastic robot, etc. Other exhibitions are targeted for kids, for their education such as people around you... More

This was the saddest "science" museum I have ever seen! My three year old is obsessed with robots and ASIMO. BUT REALLY nothing else there!!!!!!! ASIMO, and that's it. There was a kids area that was just ridiculous (low budget!!) - lots of staff that just overly enforced rules .....they made my two year old sit down for a rule... More

Really disappointed with this visit. Science museum?? I would say "Scientific kindergarden" instead. The only interesting things for adults might be Asimo's performance (not more than 15 min and not many times per day). The rest, maybe fan and instructive for kids, but zero interest for the adults

While Asimo, the moving robot, is impressive, it seems as if the rest of the show is for kids. In addition, most of the innovation is not really exciting, and more playful than advanced. In addition the movie isn't good at all, and mainly for kids.

If you're interested in technology you'll like this place. Getting there requires taking either a water taxi or the private Yurikamome line. When we were there there were more school-kids than adults, The museum itself is in a huge building, but the exhibits occupy a relatively small place. The main hall has a gorgeous display of earth with some special... More

Staying in Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi

Neighbourhood Profile
Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.
