National Museum of Nature and Science is Japan's nationally administrated comprehensive science museum and is a central institute for research in natural history and the history of science and technology.
Its permanent exhibits are categorized into two galleries: the Japan Gallery presents the various aspects of nature in Japan under the theme of “Nature of the Japanese archipelago”. The Global Gallery houses the "History of Life on Earth", which exhibits the evolution of humans, dinosaurs, and other forms of life, the diversity of biology and the environment, the progress of science and technology, and the research of the universe and materials.
Information terminals are available in the exhibition rooms for detailed narrations in four languages: Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean. At “Tanken Hiroba” (Exploration space), you can enjoy learning about science and nature through experiments.
