Osaka Science Museum

Each floor of the Osaka Science Museum shows scientific principles in action. For example, kids can place their hands on the massive cords of metal wire used in industrial power cables, and then operate hand cranks and treadmills to see if they can generate power on their own. The third floor covers chemistry and its real-world uses, such as medicine, perfume and plastics.

In line with the nationwide state of emergency declared on April 16, the government is strongly requesting that residents stay at home whenever possible and refrain from visiting bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
