Nagoya Station 

[Nagoya City Science Museum]

Gaze at the star‐studded sky in the world's largest planetarium dome, Brother Earth

Theme on "watch, touch and discover", this museum exhibits space, the earth, and cutting-edge science. Among the exhibitions, the projection of starry sky on the world's largest planetarium dome with the internal diameter of 35m is overwhelmingly incredible. Have fun learning about life and science through experiments and interactive activities, such as experiencing a 9m high artificial tornado at the tornado laboratory, observing electric sparks of 1.2 million V from the Tesla coil at the discharge laboratory, and experiencing −30℃ temperatures at the freezing laboratory.
