  • I think it's a wonderful museum. I visited there more than 20 years ago and i was impressed at that time, but the quality was still or more than that time. I think it's the best natural history museum in Japan. However, it is a difficult thing to go if it is not a car regrettably. So I've not heard from you. I want to see jicli over half a day, but there is no food and beverage in the vicinity.

  • The dinosaur exhibit is powerful and devised. There is something to touch, and it is easy for a small child to understand by the exhibition which reproduces the nature of Gunma. There is also the Oze Theater, so it takes time to watch it slowly.

  • This is a really nice Natural History Museum, but it's a ways from Tokyo (a long train ride, and an equally long car ride on top of that...). It's definately worth the trip if you're in the vicinity!
  • All information at each exhibit is in Japanese, except the name of the exhibit which is also written in English. The exhibits are very visual so you can get by without reading Japanese. However, the information provided is very interesting and educational. Same with the interactive media - Japanese only. I can read Japanese so I didn't ask, but it maybe worth asking at the reception if they have an English brochure. Parking is a disaster on a busy day. No parking attendents directing the flow. Elevator is concealed - you have to ask to be brought to it from the lower floor. Its visible and accessible from the upper floor. Good value for money. Kids are free in. The kids enjoyed it and learned a lot. Good rainy day location. It gets excellent reviews, but we've been to many museums in Japan and I found it to be just average.
