Osaka Museum of Natural History

Osaka Museum of Natural History

Opened in 1974, the Osaka Museum of Natural History introduces the history of the relationship between humanity and nature through roughly 10,000 items including animals, plants, fossils, and rocks. In particular, the displays which reproduce Osaka's mountains and forests dating back to prehistoric times are of interest, showing vividly how human lives have impacted the natural environment. Throughout the museum are numerous displays that you can touch, such as the leg bones of dinosaurs and ammonite fossils. Outside, the nearby Nagai Botanical Garden offers guided tours of seasonal plants, field observation sessions, and other hands-on activities.
