Each floor presents the history and culture of Osaka through recreations of buildings, miniature models, videos, and abundant artifacts. The remains of Naniwa Palace are preserved in the museum's basement. Tours are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

    Interesting information about the early history to present day Japan. The most interesting floor was the 10th floor. The rest was OK. The permanent display was very interesting.
