Saga Prefectural Space and Science Museum

Interesting
The museum's daring architecture reproduces a rocket launch, although the rocket is in fact a central lift to 3 levels; the first is devoted to activities for children, the second to the earth and universe and the last to the region's different ecosystems. The planetarium is one of the most modern in the world with moving seats and 3D vision. Notable attractions include an earthquake simulator, astronaut training gyroscope and a weightless simulator.
