The future is already here at this museum devoted to the latest discoveries in cutting-edge science and technology, with displays that cover everything from nanotechnology to space exploration. There are robot demonstrations (the humanoid robot Asimo seems almost real), displays that cover the future of medicine and a sustainable environment, and a movie that imagines the life of a high-school girl in 2050 (she commutes to school in a one-person helicopter). Best of all, everything is explained in great detail, with plenty of English-language touch-screens and volunteer staff to help make the most out of the three hours or so you'll spend here. Try to come on a weekday, however, as weekends and holidays can be packed with families.
