The basic idea behind this museum is...
...to let visitors know more about the principles and applications of science in a fun and exciting way.
The Nagoya City Science Museum (名古屋市科学館 Nagoya-shi Kagakukan) is a museum located in Sakae, Nagoya, the center of Nagoya City, in central Japan.
The museum houses the second largest planetarium in the world and has three main sections on modern technology, life sciences and general science with a variety of hands-on exhibits. In 2012 much of the museum was renovated to coincide with the opening of the Planetarium. The upper floor of the museum is currently devoted to a display about space and future technology, utilizing touch-screen tablets and other technology. Many of the exhibits have been specifically tailored for children, such as a model railway on the third floor in the transport section.
The museum also has features on the local Chubu region's links to science and industry.
It is located in Shirakawa Koen along with Nagoya City Art Museum, midway between Osu Kannon and Fushimi subway stations, on Fushimi-Dori.

With these attractive presentations, we realize the importance of science and technology to human beings.
Through the use of scientific breakthroughs, we can better understand the problems society is facing nowadays.
They provide the city residents with a place for a lifetime process of learning through science.
It is Nagoya City Science Museum's mission to do exhibitions and various activities for education. At the same time, they not only promote teamwork for school students but promote science activities for residents as well.
The planetarium is where we saw most of the action. It's one of the largest in the world.
I also saw many different rockets and huge telescopes. Many of them are very old but they marked significant milestones in space exploration.

It seems we'd never run out of beautiful views as well!
The Nagoya City Science Museum has many highlights such as an external appearance of landmark design featuring the spherical shape of the world's biggest planetarium with a diameter of 35 meters, a highly realistic starry sky that shown on the planetarium's screen, a -30 degree ºC room where you can see aurora images.
The building itself is the exhibition with its photovoltaic power generation equipment used to power the building, the green wall, and a way to see its earthquake-proof contraction as well as its elevator structure.
Please come visit the Nagoya City Science Museum not only for its value as a learning facility but as a tourist attraction as well. Text Source
I wish I could stay longer. It's a very relaxing tour indeed.
Souvenir shops are also must-sees!
