See space from a different perspective
TeNQ is a space-themed museum, opened in 2014. The concept of the museum is "Impress the Space", which allows to look at space from a different perspective.
The museum has 9 floors. There is a projection map called "The Origins Room" (height 4.5m, width 20m) through which you can learn what kind of thoughts ancient and modern people had about space. "Space theater", which is in fact a hole in the floor (radius 11 m) projects images of the Earth, taken from the ISS. "Science" room is where the achievements of space science are exhibited. At "Imagination" you can play with round-shaped robots or see night sky-themed art objects. At TeNQ Space store, you can buy JAXA and TeNQ goods, telescopes and other souvenirs. There are also space snacks that can make a good souvenir. You can go inside the TeNQ store without visiting the museum.
