I wanted to visit this museum as I thought Japan is on the forefront of robotics. I have to agree with other reviewers that I have seen robots like Asimo before, for some years. But still then I found the museum interesting. You explore different...More

Seeing Asimo 'perform' was the highlight of this visit. That speaks volumes! The exhibits were well set up and built but poorly planned in my humble opinion. The 'Japinglish' translations were woeful and the exhibits aimed squarely at children in a rather confusing way. Yes...More

Visited this museum just to see the robot (Asimo). Worth every Yen. Many other exhibits worth looking at also. Friendly staff, some spoke good English.

Went with my older son. Both of us are science/technology enthusiasts. I found it to be boring and hard to understand what the models were meant to convey. Kids might love the "bells and whistles" of the place, but i found it monotonous, confusing and...More

The title of the museum invokes images of great future possibilities but I found the exhibits a bit too wordy and so you can lose the interest of the adults. A rainy day so it was a full day from 10.30 to 16.30 for the...More

There were quite a few exhibits, covering the progress of various sciences, from robotics to medicine. However, most of the exhibits were aimed at school kids, meaning explanations were rather basic. Most of the exhibits have Japanese and English descriptions. The Asimo show was alright,...More

To my opinion this museum was a bit boring: not much in terms of exibits (with lots of text to read), 3-4 interactive sections that all had huge queues, but were strangely unimpressive... The Asimo performance was ok. All in all: good place to let...More

I visited the museum solely to see the robots and maybe get a glimpse of what tomorrow looks like. This section had several exhibits encouraging thought about our evolving relationship with technology, including "Androids -- What is Human?" There was an android and two robots...More

You cannot and you don't have to reserve tickets in advance. Read the website of Miraikan written in English carefully.
