    Not so big but very interesting place where you can learn a lot about the local sea animals, plants and minerals. Good for children and adults. Also, there are a few aquariums with some very cute...

    自然館の展示物や、3D映像は美しく大迫力で、山陰海岸の太古からの地形形成過程や動植物につき深く理解できます。これで無料なので、驚きです。
  • 新しくてきれい

    入場無料の施設ですが、入り口付近には水族館のように水槽で海の生き物が展示されていますし、そこそこ大きな部屋にはジオパークを紹介する様々な展示がありました。一見の価値ありです。
