Science Cafés at Machikaneyama

2011-6-18 (Sat) - 2011-10-22 (Sat)

How about enjoying a "science café" at the Museum of Osaka University?

Science cafés are special events at the Museum of Osaka University. Events in which, in a relaxed atmosphere with a cup of coffee in one hand, you consider and discuss science with researchers, specialists actually engaged in conducting scientific research! Science cafés are events for anyone, giving citizens the opportunity to bridge and enjoy bridging the communication gap between the specialist and the common person.

Won't you please come?


  • Cafés are held from 2:00 ~ 3:30 p.m. on the days noted. (See the schedule by going here.)
  • Each café is limited to a maximum of 30 persons
  • Fee: A beverage fee of ¥200 is the only fee requested from attendees. Otherwise, there is no charge for attending!
