National Museum of Emerging Science & Innovation (Miraikan)

Top choice museum in Odaiba & Tokyo Bay

Miraikan means ‘hall of the future’, and the hands-on exhibits here present the science and technology that will possibly shape the years to come. Don't miss the demonstrations of humanoid robot ASIMO (11am, 1pm, 2pm and 4pm) and the lifelike android Otonaroid (demonstration 11.30am; interactive experience 3pm to 5pm). The Gaia dome theatre/planetarium (adult/child ¥300/100) has an English audio option and is popular; book online one week in advance. A multilingual smartphone app makes a game out of visiting.
