Bando Kobe Science Museumバンドー神戸青少年科学館(2020/5/31まで休業中)

Museum / Science Museum

A science museum with a domed, rooftop astronomical observatory located a three-minute walk from Minami Koen Station on the Kobe New Transit Port-liner Line. Through exhibits that involve not just looking but getting hands on, even adults can have fun here while learning about science. The museum's planetarium, the only one in Kobe City, screens special shows on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and national holidays. The planetarium's original programs are also well-reviewed. The museum's exhibition rooms are filled with appropriately themed, interactive exhibits and experiment shows are held at the museum at set times each day. The museum's science library contains some 20 thousand volumes on space and science.

          Hyogo Areas


          Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture's main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country's most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
