National Museum of Nature and Science Reviews
半年に一回程度子連れで訪れます。広すぎて毎回見きれませんが、子供達はとても楽しんでいます。 剥製や標本の展示が充実していて、圧巻です。 小さい子が遊ぶコンパスという遊び場はかなり混み合うので朝一番で予約が必要です。 more »1 times in half a year visit with children. Too wide 見kiremasenn every time, but really enjoys children. And many specimens and taxidermy exhibits, is a sight to see. In the morning playground play little compass that is quite crowded so reservations are required.
地球館1階にある地球史ナビゲーターという映像作品がとにかく素晴らしいです。地球誕生、生命の誕生、人類の誕生を非常に分かりやすくセンスの良いアニメーションで表現していて、46億年の間にこれだけの奇跡が積み重なって辿り着いた『今日』を自分が生きているのだと思うと感動で涙が止まらなくなりました。開館から閉館まで1日ずっとこれだけ観ていても飽きません。本当に全人類に勧めたい傑作だと思います。 more »Anyway nice video work the Earth Museum on the first floor of Earth history Navigator. Think it's depicted in animation, good earth, origin of life, the birth of humanity very clearly, accumulation of this miracle of 4600000000 years, "today" he was alive and now couldn't stop tears with emotion. Also from opening until closing one day just watching and would never get bored. I think a masterpiece really want to all mankind.
It was pretty good but not great. I did still enjoy it. It did have lots of good dioramas and interesting stuffed animals. Although I'm pretty good with Japanese I noticed that there is not much English. This is a Japanese museum so fair enough but if you are traveling there and can't read Japanese this won't help you.
Truly one of the best museums I've been to. I really enjoyed the way the exhibits were displayed and thoughtfully explained. I truly appreciated this museum as one of the highlights of my time in Japan. There is so much to do here, as there are 6 floors to explore. I recommend getting here early, or coming on a Friday or Saturday when they are open until 8, rather than 5, if you plan to get it all done in one go.
