  • Took a little kid on spring break. Unfortunately, the kid did not concern so much. However, this is very nice as a facility for adults. I have a lot of other do not know from the story of the taro and Jiro, winter appearance and clothing. Snow also was surprised. This facility is free of charge.

  • It was understood well the significance of the history of Antarctic exploration and research. It was a polite description vanel especially Antarctic climate, mineral and biological descriptions and display more readable and sophisticated. Snow real model puts in. I was impressed by research in the harsh conditions. There were elementary school children on field trips. That really touched the ice looked fun.

  • 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.

  • And stopped. You can learn a variety of information on Antarctic and Arctic than thought. You can see into Antarctica points reaching snow personally, could meet. Elementary school children, but also adults enjoy with the kids but also parts where you can enjoy good very good. You can also watch Aurora in Aurora domes. It is recommended upon admission and parking are free so I went near the closer look. Showa Memorial Park so close, around one hour to families with children is recommended.

  • I'm touching the ice, you can!    This is the exhibition hall of the National Institute of Arctic & Antarctic research.  Valuable goods, such as materials and tools were used in the expedition actually exhibitions, exhibitions of the collection of polar organisms and minerals, such as can be found. Certainly many of the technical content, so not interested if you could be a little bit disappointing.  However, there is no doubt that increased interest in the polar regions, and try the easy-to-understand explanations! Child photograph wearing a cute animal taxidermy and expedition jackets, the Aurora Theatre at the Expo is plenty!

  • Easy to understand content, there are spectacular. Talk about wintering and dog talk with no tears. Can be recommended for people like that because it was selling novelties of the anime, that takes place in the Antarctic.
