Nagoya City Science Museum
The Nagoya City Science Museum is a popular place for citizens and remains well recognised as a venue space for events including activities organised by elementary schools.

Situated right at the heart of Nagoya City, the Nagoya City Museum houses two main function rooms.
One, an exhibition space for interactive and experiential activities, the other, a planetarium that projects the latest technologies and realities in large scale formats.
Enjoyed by children and adults alike, this is an ideal venue that tourists can come to know as well.

Planetarium
The world’s largest planetarium “Brother Earth”

Nagoya's planetarium "Brother Earth" is the world's largest.
The night sky and projected universe reproduced by the "Universarium IX Planetarium (optical planetarium)" and the "Skymax DSII (digital planetarium)" are as close to the real universe and to our reality.
Enjoy a truly an immersive and memorable experience with a live commentary by a curator, a grand sound system specially designed to accommodate the dome shape, and comfortable reclining seats.

Interactive Events
Interactive Events at a Science Museum

There are many fun, interactive and educational tools located in the exhibition room.
The first will probably be the "Extreme Cold Lab".
You can experience temperatures of minus 30 degrees Celsius in the "Extreme Cold Lab".
In addition, you can also watch images of the Aurora and touch ice in the Antarctica while experiencing this exceedingly low temperature.
Next, the "Tornado Lab" comes highly recommended as well.
You can witness up close and personal, how a 9-meter high artificial tornado looks like and how it is formed.
At the Discharge Lab, electric sparks as far as 4 meters manifest when a coil gets released.
You can actually hear the sound of this voltage and feel the power of electricity all around you.
You don't need a ticket for the Tornado Lab, but you do need a numbered ticket for the Extreme Cold Lab and the Discharge Lab.
These events are so popular that the numbered tickets run out quickly.
Please be reminded that you would need to purchase your own personal ticket as soon as possible to ensure admission to the specific lab is fully secured.
