About Exhibition of trains and shinkansen, train driving simulator and operational system. There is a very big railway diorama, if we take photos, it will appear the same as actual real of Tokyo view & buildings.

This railway museum is mostly oriented to the history of Shinkansen trains and long distance (pre-shinkansen) travel in Japan. Very neat museum, with most signs in English. Must visit for people interested in Japanese trains. You can also go into the trains themselves. Easily accessible by private railway (which is a bit odd since the museum is JR) from Nagoya... More

There is so much to see and do that you may want to put at least half a day aside, if not the a day. If you drive, use the carpark past the museum. It's Y700 for the day, no hourly increments and less than half the price of the nearer carpark. There are so many rolling stock on display... More

If you want to learn the railway system in Nagoya, this is the best place to be. They have a fantastic working railway model of the city. It looks very real. You will see the old train to bullet train. A lot of learning experience. Don't miss it.

Its a great museum you have the progression from the first train to the latest Shinkansen and Maglev trains. There is only one slight problem and it is that there are some parts of the museum that is explained in English but not everywhere

Quite a lot to learn about 'Shinkansen' trains in this museum. Technologies from past, present and future. The demonstration of Scmaglev technology was particularly interesting for me.

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!!!
