Each of the other floors introduces a different Period in Osaka's past, using exhibit models and going from ancient days to more recent times as you move down. The museum is designed to give visitors a multi-dimensional experience of the 1,350-year history of Osaka, with life-size reconstructions, scale models, and key photographs and movies.
