Kaleidoscope Museum of Kyoto

Museums, Art and design
The city’s most hands-on museum is one of its most charming. The friendly staff encourage you to get touchy-feely with exhibits such as kaleidoscopes made from dustbins, mobile phones and violins. If you’re suitably inspired, you can join a workshop in the café to make your own polychrome toy.
