The Kansai Region Sights

Osaka Rekishi Hakubutsukan (Osaka Museum of History)

  • 1–32 Otemae Map It

Fodor's Review

Informative as it is enjoyable, the Osaka Museum of History immerses you in the city's history from pre-feudal times to the early 20th century. Full of life-size displays and hands-on activities, the museum does an excellent job of offering attractions for both children and adults. There are two paths through the exhibits, a "Highlight Course" (to get a hint of Osaka's past in less than an hour) and the "Complete Course" (for a fuller experience). The museum makes an excellent stop on the way to Osaka Castle. To get here take the Chuo or Tani-machi subway line to Tani-machi 4-Chome Station and take Exit 9 or 2.
