The museum is best known for its three taxidermy specimens and two frozen specimens of coelacanth, a so-called “living fossil.” Other popular exhibits include a tank dedicated to organisms that inhabit Suruga Bay and a deep sea “planetarium” showcasing mesmerizing bioluminescent species. There is also a museum shop with toys, accessories, confectionary and other delightful souvenirs, all with a deep sea theme.
