Before even entereing, you will likely be amazed by the exterior of the museum. This sphere-shaped part of the museum is the planetarium completed in 2012. The inside (shown below) will make you feel as if you are in a science-fiction movie. The planetarium is the most popular part of the museum.
The programs for the planetarium change each month based on current astronomical phenomena. The shows are projections on a huge spherical screen. Although the explanations are in Japanese, foreign visitors who do not understand Japanese still thoroughly enjoy the visual aspect.
