Museum of Aeronautical Sciences
Dedicated to aviation, this fun and educational museum has both replica and real airplanes, clothing and equipment used by aviators, a real cockpit you can sit in, a DC-9 flight simulation experience, and much more. An observation tower brings you closer to the planes taking off from Narita Airport, and the museum even has a fourth-floor restaurant with views of the sky.

This outdoor observation area provides unobstructed views of airplanes taking off from Narita Airport and flying almost directly overhead. Aviation enthusiasts will likely want to visit Airplane Hill after touring the Museum of Aeronautical Sciences for the full visual and auditory experience!
