Explore the museum's different learning zones
Inside the Saga Prefectural Space and Science Museum, there are five exhibition zones, as well as a 200-person capacity planetarium on the third floor that features themed shows. The zones cover everything from astronomy to ecology, and of course, space exploration. There's also a large telescope and observatory.
Activities for the family
What really sets this museum apart is the number of hands-on activities for adults and kids. Try out the high-wire bicycles, where you can peddle across an expansion of space while experiencing the center of gravity. Or buckle up, put on a helmet, and get ready for some twisting and turning on the Space Trainer, where you can experience the same gyroscopic forces that astronauts do inside a spacecraft.
