Miraikan, Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Tokyo, Japan)

(via JNTO)

There are two science museums in Tokyo, and we chose to visit the Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation because it was supposed to have more English displays.  As you can probably tell from the name, the museum focuses on new ideas in science.  Instead of the usual interactive physics and biology displays, the museum had extensive exhibits about robots, space, and disease.  We saw a demonstration of ASIMO (creepy, surreal), walked through a partial replica of the international space station, and went to the special Doreamon exhibit on the future of human-robot interaction.  The building itself is beautiful — filled with light and space.  There is also a domed theater showing several movies throughout the day.  While the idea of the museum is pretty cool, we were pretty disappointed with the exhibits.  They seemed to lack substance and depth!
