Welcome to a world of living things that are brimming with diversity
A “living museum” where you can closely observe creatures that live in water and on land, in an artistic space. The museum consists of seven zones with “appeal to your instinct” as their concept, and displays the abilities, beautiful colors and behavior of each of the creatures in an easy to understand way. Even if you watch them all day long, you’ll never tire of the white tigers, estuarine crocodiles and other fierce animals in “Waterside” and the freely-roaming capybaras and ring-tailed lemurs in “Behavior”. This is a museum that will make you realize once again just how diverse living things are.
In “Behavior”, you can see freely-roaming creatures up close
