Kids Plaza Osaka, Osaka

4.3
#4 of 40 in Museums in Osaka
Take the kids to Kids Plaza Osaka, a museum aimed squarely at children, helping them learn through play. Across five themed floors, the museum has kids climbing on surreal structures designed by Austrian architect Friedensreich Hundertwasse, teaching to play weird and wonderful musical instruments from around the world, or becoming police or postal workers in the make-believe town on the fourth floor. You can find plenty more activities on site, and although there is no cafeteria, you're welcome to bring a packed lunch, or can come and go as you please during the visit by showing your pass. For Kids Plaza Osaka and beyond, use our Osaka road trip planning site to get the most from your Osaka vacation.

  • Amazing place for kids! Kids don't need to much language skills to communicate with Japanese. They can have fun all day inside and outside. And there is quite easy to have lunch and dinner around the place, few minutes of walking.
  • This place is an awesome day out for the kid(s) - much better than I had imagined. It's quite amazing how inventive and varied the activities on offer are - and there's a great park/ playground outside too. Highly recommended!
  • The complex is a huge educational playground for kids. There are things to do and sections for toddlers up to school graders. You can practically spend the whole day here! Nearest train station is Ogamachi, next is Tenma.
  • Playground meets science fair! A great run around for all the kids today!
  • Kids loved it. Great break for them from doing grown up things on holiday. Suit kids below 10.

Where to stay in Osaka

The majority of Osaka's moderate and expensive accommodations concentrate in the districts of Umeda, Kyobashi, Namba, and Shin-Osaka. Base your stay in or near Minami neighborhood for proximity to a wide selection of shopping and dining options. For quick access to long-distance transportation to other cities and areas, look for hotels in Kita district. Many backpackers prefer the budget options in the Tennoji area, where the quality of rooms and prices vary wildly--call or check websites of specific establishments before you make reservations.
