  • Or any observation research activities done in the Antarctic, the Arctic is a Science Museum that it knows all. Enjoy the mysterious lights on permanent exhibit here, just experience the 3D Aurora Theatre and touching the ice of the South Pole. Heavy snow has been certified to the mechanical engineering heritage also exhibits, was a very happy place.

  • Free of charge. End up in five minutes that people aren't interested in, and where is. But fulfilling for those who like exhibition of snow-car actually was being used at Syowa station, Antarctica, Aurora viewing experience and Syowa station, live footage and exhibits spectacular. Panel exhibition of dogs in dog sledding in Antarctica was impressed.

  • Here is what free! I thought that simulates the Aurora from Syowa station observed on the actual "Aurora Theatre' is especially great. This is really happy with free admission.
