Since the opening in October 2017 the graduate school of Kyushu University-educated astronaut Koichi Wakata has been acted as our honorary curator.
The Dome Theater Planetarium (6F), whose 25-meter diameter dome is one of the largest in Kyushu, has 220 seats arranged spaciously and its 3D digital surround system gives an extraordinary 3D appearance and realistic sensation.
The Basic Exhibition Room (5F) offers an opportunity for learning about many things: the infinite universe, our surrounding environment, technologies that support our everyday lives, structures and mysteries of life, future, etc.
There are also Science Navigation and a science-book library, Laboratory rooms for intriguing science experiments, and a multipurpose Science Hall equipped with a 4K projector where events such as lectures, seminars and theatrical performances are held.
※Robosquare (formerly located in the TNC TV Building, 2F, 2-3-2 Momochihama, Sawara-ku, Fukuoka City) has been relocated to the Basic Exhibition Room on the 5th floor of the Science Museum.
