Miraikan, also known as The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, houses the most advanced exhibits in robotics, space exploration, nature, and even art. Some of its permanent exhibit highlights include a huge globe made of organic panels, a simulated interaction between nature and technology, space experiments and astronaut life, and a live demonstration of their mascot robot – ASIMO. One thing that you also should not miss is the Dome Theatre – an impressive stereoscopic projector that features 3D movies about the “Theory of Everything” and the universe’s connection to life. It projects jaw-dropping ten million stars to fully imbibe the vast space.
Truly illustrating that technology has evolved, the museum even has its own app to guide you. Your visit will not be complete without using the app – Miraikan Notebook – while browsing the exhibits. With support of English language, it features an audio guide, quests, and AR filters to make your learning journey fun and memorable.
