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.

I would have fully enjoyed my visit to this museum, but the theme that persisted from the moment I entered the museum is the lack of accommodation for English speaking visitors. Upon entry, a young lady, who does not speak English, tried to communicate to me that there is a lottery system to do a simulator for one of the... More

The museum is very easy to get to, just catch a train on the Aonomi Line from JR Nagoya Station and get off at Kinjo-futo Station. From there it's a 2 minute walk to the front entrance of the museum. This displays itself are very informative and engaging, whereby they take you on a journey to understand how the Shinkansen... More

We were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to visit this wonderful rail museum. The displays of Shinkansen through the ages and the brilliant interactive dioramas, simulators and many others are well worth a visit to this incredible place just a train ride away from Nagoya.
