Would you call this a zoo or a museum…?

Whichever you want to call it, it was such an interesting experience and there were many photo opportunities there.

Explore nine exhibits, designed with interesting glass vessels, projections, multi-coloured lighting, and of course, goldfishes of common and rare species.

Art Aquarium Museum started off as a temporary exhibition in Nihonnashi, before it reopened as permanent attraction in on Level 8 and 9 of Mitsukoshi New Building in Ginza.

Pro tip: You have to collect the tickets on Level 9 instead of 8, and Level 9 is only accessible via the elevator.
