Tokyo Museums: Gas Museum

Gas Museum ガスミュージアム

The Gas Museum in Toyosu, Tokyo is a child-friendly, hands-on, free museum popular with families at the weekends and organized elementary school groups during the week.

Gas Museum Exhibits

The Gas Museum is definitely aimed at younger children, those of elementary school age, and might not be of interest to Junior or High School students, though adults can certainly be entertained.

The spacious lobby has a fun demonstration of a hot air balloon which rises up to the ceiling every so often powered by the gas burners underneath. The rest of the first floor has a series of hands-on exhibits geared to keep your kids hooked on gas for an hour or two at least. At regular intervals there are interactive science quizzes in the auditorium lead by a teacher.

The second floor is dedicated to energy and heat and lets your kids experience cooking by gas on large computer screens. Flip the computer-generated frying pan to cook up some tasty fried noodles.

Take the elevator to the roof garden where there are fantastic views from the lawn out over Tokyo Bay, over to the Lalaport shopping mall and even as far as the new Tsukiji Market close to Shin-Toyosu Station on the Yurikamome Line.

For a complete child-friendly day, combine your trip to the Gas Museum in Toyosu with an extended stay at Kidzania, where you can prepare your offspring for the challenging world of adult work ahead, located on the 3rd floor inside the vast Lalaport shopping mall, one of Tokyo's largest shopping malls.

Lalaport is choc-a-bloc with restaurants, cafes, fast food joints, brand stores and amusements and only a short walk from the Gas Museum, across the pleasant seaside Toyosu Park.
