SCMAGLEV is another great train museum in Japan. It has the newest collection of japanese 'shinkansen' including maglev. Shinkansen simulator is a must to try when you visit it. Also don't forget to experience the speed of maglev in the mini theater. The museum shop offers a great variety of train souveniers.

The City of Nagoya went all out with their Scmaglev and Railway park. Located South West of Nagoya City area. Has a large collection of trains of all types. Not very expensive to get in.

My son and I loved the Park. They have so many cool old trains. The best part of the park was the model train display with the different areas of Japan. A few hands on exhibits to keep your Thomas fan happy. If you are in Nagoya check it out!!!

I think I went in with too high of expectations, but this museum was rather small and not that interesting. It's basically comprised of a collection of trains. As I've already traveled by train a lot in Japan, seeing these trains and going on them was nothing special. They also didn't have comprehensive information in English. The price was 1000... More

I have been to Nagoya many times and finally got the time to visit this lovely Railway Park. The park showcases the train used in the past, at present, and in the future. It also has detailed explanation of the design and working principle of train operating systems, and the evolution from the past till now! The park is spacious... More

Location: via Aonami line, take the last stop at Kinjo Futo, exit and walk towards a warehouse-like structure (5 min) with a locomotive parked outside. Pretty deserted place with a Furniture Dome hypermart nearby. Attraction: entrance includes all exhibits and lectures. At entrance, tear off ticket stubs for choice of hands-on experience eg. maglev train driving simulation. Put the stubs... More

Had a great 3 hours at this museum. Easy to get to from Nagoya station. Went on a Tuesday and there were no crowds to speak of. Possibly the most English friendly place I've been to anywhere in Japan. All the exhibits were understandable in English even without an audio guide. Lots of interesting exhibits with technical explanations about operations,... More

Train is the heart of Japan. It makes Japan and its people move. Having said that, the evolution of train is well explained in this museum. You can see the first model until the latest one. This museum is near to the Port Nagoya. Approaching the end of the rail line. The cost is about USD15. Total time to/ fro... More
