Kids Plaza Osaka, Osaka

4.3
#4 of 46 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.

  • And 1-year-old child was so crowded on weekends, so many great kids. I was overwhelmed almost nothing and more at baby space is this enough or free support center.

  • The bigger one should go to the Science Museum in Tokyo, where babies under the age of 2 can also come here to experience a small baby-fit place to live. These facilities are very scarce in China, where the children's playground is dominated by playgrounds, and there are few venues like this for educational purposes.

  • The museum is better than you think, and it's very close to the station, you can experience a lot of things, and there's a science museum, there are also small insect areas, which is a very good place to play in the bubble area, the children can play very happy, to stay on the Gui is no problem, can bring food into the dining, basically here is very interesting, The service people in the library are very good, even if the language does not make sense, but also very carefully teach the children to use the design, excellent.

  • Definitely plan to spend more than an hour here. Probably two-and-a-half just to really spend time on everything. It doesn’t matter if you have a wiggly kid or a science kid or a quiet kid, they all will find a space here. Our 6- and 10-year-old has a really great time. Kids are encouraged to touch and try and question. A lot of fun!
  • Lots of fun for the kids. Very traditional cultural stuff. Very good for foreigners like us. We learn a lot of Japanese culture here. The play area was very well set up. My kids didn't want to leave. Very easy to get to.
  • Excellent place for the kids to play!! If I had lived nearby I would have been a daily visitor!! There’s so many things that the kids can explore and learn!! It’s a great place very much recommended for all kids!! Don’t miss to plan to spend a full day in your itineraries that your kids will feel happy & holidaying... & learn in the process!!!
  • Extremely friendly and helpful staff. For my six and eight year olds, the 5th floor was perfect. We had a hard time tearing them away from exhibits. I’ve been to many children’s museums and this one impressed me quite a bit with its exhibits that seemed to encourage teamwork.
  • A must visit if you’re traveling with children in Osaka! So many interactive exhibits! We spent at least an hour on each floor. I recommend you allot at least 2-3 hours for a visit here!
