Review of Wakayama Prefectural Museum of Natural History

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/10/22 即位の礼
即位礼正殿の儀の慶祝行事として、入館料が無料となっていました。全滅となったと報道されていた大水槽も復旧していました。早く、以前のように、多く、大きな魚が、泳ぎ回る姿を見たいものです。
Reviewed:2019/10/09 ゆっくりとみれる水族館
自然博物館という名ですが水族館です。入り口を入って行くと大きなガラスばりの水槽に出会います。ゆったりと大きなアジやエイ、これといって珍しいものはない普通のさかなが泳いでいます。個人的にこの場所が一番好きでお勧めです。あまり混雑もせず、小さい子供達でも水槽ガラスまじかに観れていいと思います。昆虫や和歌山に生息する動物の剥製も展示してるのでいろいろと学習できると思います。
駐車場は博物館より道をはさん...
Reviewed:2018/10/28 期待以上
小さいながらも水族館くらいの価値はあります。亀やカエルなど身近な生き物からはじまって、大きい水槽を泳ぐ魚たちに癒されます。
タッチングプールがあったのも良かったです。
ゆっくり見て回れるし、とくにお子様連れにはオススメです。

          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country’s most delicious ramen noodles.
