National Museum of Nature and Science


Museums & Attractions


At this museum inside Ueno Park, the exhibits of fossils, specimens and asteroids are now supplemented with touch screens providing videos and multilingual explanations. After checking out dinosaur bones and a prehistoric house built with mammoth tusks, you may want to taste the speciality of the museum’s Musee Basara restaurant: a ‘dinosaur’s egg’ croquette.
