2-1 Kitanomaru-koen, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo

Five levels of hands-on fun and scientific discovery

Located in Kitanomaru Park, just a short walk from Takebashi Station, you'll find Chiyoda's Science Museum. With five levels of hands-on exhibits, you can easily spend a few hours of scientific discovery here. The museum's displays cover all facets of scientific exploration, from the technology of bicycles to space exploration.

While many of the displays are in Japanese, if you ask at the front desk you’ll be provided with an English language booklet to guide you through the exhibits. At the end of your visit, be sure to pop by the museum’s gift store which stocks a wide range of novel scientific gifts and souvenirs including dried space food. There's also a restaurant on the basement floor.
