Connect with Living Creatures at NIFREL in Osaka

Discover, learn, and enjoy at this uniquely interactive aquazoo fit for the entire family

Curated by the Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, NIFREL is an interactive museum where you can learn all about the Earth's biodiversity while appreciating its beauty as if you were in an art museum. Visiting will not only enrich your mind but also your senses, and the full experience can be enjoyed by children and adults alike.

Stroll through the halls of the museum, which is divided into multiple zones: "color", "abilities", "wonder moments", "mimic", "waterside", "behavior", "biodiversity" and "swim". Each section highlights a different aspect of the various unique denizens of the ocean, allowing you to take in all the wonders of these living creatures and the otherworldly environment they inhabit. The main goal of the facility is to enable the connection of people to animals, nature, and to each other during their visit.

After taking in the exhibits, enjoy a drink or bite to eat at the museum cafe while gazing upon living creatures in an open setting. After leaving the museum, be sure to stop by the neighboring Expo City shopping and entertainment complex, as well as the 1970 Expo Commemorative Park, both of which can easily be visited from NIFREL.
