Fukuoka Science Museum

Visitors can learn while playing with and experiencing science at the “planet Earth” themed Fukuoka Science Museum. It offers an abundance of features, such as simulated space experience, a flight simulator, conversation with a robot, and virtual reality games. At the Cosmos Theater, an impressive movie with a 360-degree view of the night sky and 25 thousand stars can be enjoyed. The science experiments (such as an electrical discharge experiment) and engineering workshops are also very popular. Various special exhibitions about science take place throughout the year.
