Review of The Saga Prefectural Space & Science Museum

Reviewed:2016/12/08 For kids and locals
If you dont understand Japanese, dont bother to consider putting this in the itinerary. This place is more suitable for kids and locals.

佐賀にある宇宙科学館。
一見、子供向けのイメージだが、実際はそんなことはなく、大人も楽しめる科学館になってます。
デートで利用しましたが、人が入れる巨大なシャボン玉や、ちょっとしたアトラクション、プラネタリウムにと、とても楽しめました!
Reviewed:2019/10/24 みんなで楽しめる場所
入場料が安く、中身は非常に充実していました。私が一番気に入ったのは、月の重力歩行体験でした。時間の都合で、プラネタリウム見学ができなかったのが残念でした。次回来館するときは、ゆっくりと時間をかけて回りたいと思います。

          Away from the fast-paced cities of mainland Japan, Kyushu’s Saga prefecture offers quaint towns and cities known for their traditional crafts, particularly ceramics. Rich in kaolin (a type of clay), Saga became the homeland of Arita ware, a delicate, decorative porcelain that is now celebrated worldwide and can be discovered in the towns of Arita, Imari, and Karatsu.
