This huge, two-building general science museum was established in 1877 and covers a wide variety of scientific knowledge including the evolution of living things, the Earth's formative history, nature, and astronomy. It has on display a giant dinosaur fossil, a moon rock and the stuffed body of Hachiko, the famous loyal Akita dog. If you cannot read Japanese, bring along a Japanese friend who can translate things for you. Otherwise, the range of sites to see will be limited.
