Discovery Park Yaizu

Discovery Park Yaizu is a complex facility with houses both an astronomy museum and a heated pool. The three themes of the complex are space, sea, and nature. The rooftop observatory awes visitors with its 80cm wide reflecting telescope. The planetarium’s 18 meter dome can recreate the mysterious starry heavens in detail. An exciting scientific experiment show is held every Saturday and Sunday.
