We saw penguins swimming, feeding, sun bathing, staring, fighting and even frowning. Also, there were many other aquatic life like morays, eels and even mudskippers etc! Overall its small aquarium but houses over 70 penguins of 9 different species.

So adorable especially during feeding time. It's also cheap (I think less than AUD$10). But difficult to get to by bus if you don't know what your doing. Their buses names are in kanji rather than numbers.

Amazing spot to unwind and observe amazingly adorable penguins! Nice facilities and friendly staff. Although, be wary of the transportation back. Just note down the timetable, for your own sake.

The museum is for PENGUINS, first! Their variety of penguins is amazing. King, Chinstrap, Galapagos, Jackass (African) and Humbolt, Little Blue, Rock hopper, Gentoo and Adelie. The frolic outside is fun!
