I expected more of this place. It was cute to see the penguins and I'm sure kids would love it! But to me, it wasn't special. If you have extra time, then go see it. And try to go during the weekend where you can...More

We found our way here by bus. Spent a day walking around checking everything out! So much to see, lots to take pictures of. A great little spot not to be missed!

I loved this place! It's only a small area however it is different from viewing penguins in an aquarium or zoo. You can have a close up view of the penguins and there are some penguin shows.

The aquarium was small but kids were quite fond of it, especially the outdoor sand area(near exit) where penguins were roaming freely. Did not manage to catch any show.

Very good with kids that love penguins, the bus ride from central Nagasaki was a bit long but pleasant. The place is indeed small, but the entrance was cheap as a consequence. We went on a weekday (no touching/feeding penguin experience, alas), with few visitors,...More

We stoipped in Nagasaki on our world cruise. Rather than going to the peace museum(we'd seen the one in Hiroshima) we decided to visit the aquarium. It was absolutely wonderful. We saw 7 species of penguins, 2 emperor penguin young(they were huge). For a small...More

As you'll read from other reviews it's about a 30 minute bus journey out to the aquarium and I suggest you get there by 10:00 am - feeding starts from around 10:30. Then penguins are let out onto the beach and have a nice swim...More

The aquarium is not too big. I recommend you can spend 1 hour 30 minutes to finish the route
