You will see old and new trains and also showcases how the latest bullet train operates. There is also a history room, Shinkansen simulation and photo taking opportunities. Kids can put on the captain's uniform for... More

We visited on a crowded public holiday but still had a great time. The shinkansens were our favourite - they have one of each series and you can walk inside, sit down etc. The shinkansen simulator is great fun to watch even if you're not in the driver's seat! Fantastic gift store for the train spotters in your life.

A complete history of the passenger railroad in Japan. There is at least one of every kind of engine and car ever used in Japan, up to and including the developmental MAGLEV being tested now. Well worth the short train ride and cost of admission.

This museum is new to me. I havent seen any museums before which showcase trains from the past. This shows the different trains from the past to present. This made me admire Japanese more. I was able to see how progressive they were even in the past.

This museum and display area of the future is a great place to visit. It is easy to get to by train, and takes 3-4hrs to look around properly, by a non train spotter. (I guess if you are train obsessed it may take longer) We did the new 500kph bullet train experience which is great fun and exciting to... More

Our 6 year old became obsessed with trains while travelling around Japan and we stumbled across this museum. We also visited 'The Railway Museum' in Tokyo and this facility has more trains and activities. You can also put your name down in the lottery to have the opportunity to drive the various simulators. Basically you get a ticket with a... More

Found that this was a really good place to visit. :Firstly it is easy to get to by rail from Nagoya station (350yen each way, note that if you have a Suica card then the private line you go on will accept that which makes things easier). Once you are there there are lots of different trains to walk around... More

Big, well laid out, the Aonami line will take you there, it's the last stop. Well worth a visit of a couple of hours.

What's impressive in the display of different train models.For a train fanatic, it was worth the trip. It could be better if there were more fringe displays on the science of trains and perhaps tours.

Toyota or SCMaglev - I read your reviews and we concur that this was a great choice! given our time and location constraints. The non-rail enthusiast even enjoyed this park. We learned a lot about Japan Rail. Wish we were in a position to take some ideas back to Canada. However, it was money and time well spent.
