Ueno Science Museum

I've always wanted to visit the Ueno Science Museum and hence was really happy when a friend invited me to go.

The entrance fees for adults is 620yen.

First up was the dinosaur exhibit which reminded me of the one in Panasonic Centre in Odaiba when I visited more than 10 years ago.

The next one was on Biodiversity. I like these as you get to see many beautiful plants and animals in this one.

Then there's the Animal of the Earth which was amazing too.

Apparently, this is Hachiko~

This picture here is from the exhibit -Japanese people and nature.

Then this is from the History of Japanese Islands.

While the exhibits are stunning. My favourite would be the Theater 360 which is a movie theater in spherical 3D. The viewer stands on a bridge surrounded on all sides by a seamless sphere of video. Hence, the movie visible in all directions 360 degrees around. Such a great experience, but you do have to queue quite a bit for it. Would definitely go back for it!

We didn't have much time in the Museum as we only had about 2-3 hours. So if you want to really explore the different exhibits properly, make sure you allocate more time for the museum.
