  • Stuffed animal organisms live in polar regions, rocks and meteorites, snowmobiles, are exhibited. You can pick up ice in the Antarctic. Also, at the Aurora Theater every 15 minutes on a dome screen Aurora color showing. Aurora image was very beautiful, but never saw the northern lights '. Seating seating comfort is better recommended. Admission is free of charge.

  • Located in national language Research Institute and the District Court. See the narrow road, which is a small sign on the East side. (Photo) is put on the North and West. There are moderately sized and equipped. Was reading the commentary, so it took more than an hour. See the exhibition only, 30 minutes? There was resting a little across the Institute.

  • Tachikawa-Shi: ☆ national Polar Research Institute, the public places: the Antarctic ice bubbles near the entrance there is a lot of. About 20000 years ago bubbles. Surprisingly [Showa base in-room] and large [4.3-mat] personal cardboard box-on average five boxes. The residential building in average 15 ° C. Exhibition facilities in [Moon, meteorites from Mars] touching the video 👀 out. It is a space adventure is filled. [KD604 snow vehicle] ⇒ authentic heritage machinery. Minus 30-40 degrees and jelly-like fuel oil, manual lubrication is very. The frame of the technology development of the engines withstand frigid development's habitability, such as Japan.

  • The exhibition spread, such as geography, history and the universe, as well as biodiversity in the Antarctic. Antarctic rocks and meteorites, seen under a microscope was very interesting. It was a volume could not be expected from simple up to tough talk, a small hotel. Want to go again!

  • And so I went to the actual "really here? "And a sober look puzzled and sometimes the size itself is dense and only research center there is not enough exhibits were unbeatable, not odd. With this admission free of charge was a surprise. Polar Research is what even I think is a great place to learn. As a Science Museum, on Sunday in the closing days, so visitors going on a little note.

  • I would have to walk for a while from the gate, so difficult to understand at first. Theater projection room measurement probe, dog sledding, base, ship models, and real snow and Northern lights, meteorites, Antarctic biology, will anyway like crazy rich exhibits. And fun wearing costumes in the polar regions as well, taking souvenir photos. I think it is also free of charge to the families happy.
