We took a short local train ride to the Park from Nagoya JR Station and found the Park just outside our destination station. There are inspiring shinkansen trains as well as old steam trains on view. You can enter a raffle to drive the shinkansen simulator, be a conductor, etc. There is a slight additional charge if you win. I... More

This was the coolest museum we visited in Japan: a state-of-the-art attraction, featuring lots of trains to check out on the outside and walk around inside, interactive exhibits, great bilingual explanations of what you were seeing, and fun little touches like photo booths set up in the cabs of trains. We had a great lunch upstairs - lots of fun... More

We went here on a Monday because it was open and most of the museums in Japan are closed on a Monday. It was however one of the best museums that we have been to. A lot of trains to see with interiors accessible to the visitor. The train diaroma was also very nice with a lot of simulations for... More

This is at the end of the subway line and takes 25 mins from Nagoya station. It's located right outside the subway station and we'll sign posted. We spent about 2 hours looking at the trains and the model train set is amazing. We also got to watch a movie in English. They will English session if you ask. There... More

Great place to go with young children and see some Japan train history. Including some Shinkansen history and the proto Maglev. Bento's can be bought onsite and consumed in outside train carriages, great with kids. Nice shop for some themed souvenirs.

I did not join the Shinkansen simulation as I saw many children went there, don't wanna let them down if I was picked by lucky draw. I saw them enjoying it! and the train models were just marvellous especially for the introduction of magnetic-driven train in the future. Can't wait to try in real person!

So many full size trains! It is almost overwhelming, but so much fun to see all the trains and walk through them. The facility is on the coast, so it is nice to see the ships and harbor when you get off the subway on your way to the train museum. A nice way to spend about a half day.

Heading for this museum to finally inspect the real inside of a Shinkansen train, to look how it feels in the frontseat driving this train and get impressed with it. Well, actually, there are some mock-ups. OK, lets get inside to the drivers seat. Nope, you are allowed to see that seats that you will find in any train around... More

We didn't know what to expect when my son and I visited this place. My wife and daughter chose to stay in the hotel and now they regret when they saw the activities that we did. There are massive collection of trains in this museum and there's a mini train display with realistic day and night zone display. There's a... More

Spent several hours today at this attraction. We've been using our JR Rail passes for almost 3 weeks so naturally you develop some curiosity about the trains you're riding on. This place turned out to be very well done, very doable for English speakers, a must for families with young kids who have that "train thing" going on. My daughter... More
