The Osaka Museum of History lies just outside Osaka Castle Park. The top floor of this museum is a full-size re-creation of the inside of the Naniwanomiya Palace. 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.
