This is a very interesting place to visit as they have the evolution of trains in Japan all in one building. Once you are inside its recommended to enter the lottery for the train simulators and then go back to the beginning. Lots of trains to look at from early steam to the very latest Maglev and they have the... More

Very nice museum. Typical Japanese cleanliness. Everything immaculate. Took about an hour to do the whole deal. Couldn't really get into the engineers space on the trains. Could only walk through the passenger cars. Nice model city setup of Nagoya. Great attention to detail. All in all a nice museum. Looked like a nice children's play area.

This is a nice place to bring your children to appreciate the Japanese trains development. The place is around 25 minutes by train using the Anaomi line from Nagoya station. Note that JR pass is not accepted for this line.

It is quite far away. We took the JR to the Railway Park. Good information about Japan types of trains, models and some high level specifications. I cannot say anything bad about the museum and there are only trains to see of course. You can finish visiting the place in less than two hours unless you are a train enthusiast... More

The place you can see real train compartments and see the history and development of Shinkansen. Don't forget to tour around outside the museum and buy the dedicated souvenirs.

Great to learn about trains and they have many trains on display and you can walk through. Took the simulator on the maglev train of the future and its very interesting to experience speeds of up to 500 km/h.

After a subway ride and then an hours ride on the shinkansen, then a 24 minute ride to the port side stop Kinjo-futo, I’m there. The signs easily point you to the MAGLEV Railway Park which is close by. I rented an audio guide for English descriptions and spent a bit over 2 hrs there. The top level has a... More

Quite a learning experience about the impressive Japan trains and systems. Extremely well explained basics of the technology behind the rapid trains systems, simulators, growth plans for the next 30 years as well as a lot of history about trains. Also an impressive collection of real trains as well as an impressive scale model of the trains moving through Japan... More
