As its name suggests the National Museum of Nature and Science, a venerable institution in Tokyo since 1871, offers a wide variety of natural history exhibits; these are divided between two main galleries, namely the Japan Gallery and the Global Gallery.

Visitors are charmed by the polished and perfectly maintained old steam locomotive at the front entrance. Inside, more thrill of discovery abounds with a triceratops fossil, giant pandas, a papier-mâché globe of the earth fashioned by hand in 1695, and a Troughton & Simms telescope from the 1800s. There is virtually no end of fascinating things to see and learn about.

Situated in the northeast corner of Ueno Park, the National Museum of Nature and Science entertains and educates through its array of exhibits and interactive science displays. It’s a perfect point of interest to explore on a rainy day or if you have children with you on your visit to Tokyo, Japan.
