This museum have a crazy detail model, the model makes the train, car and others moved. There is a fire alarm at the night, the firetruck will come and that was crazily detail. If you have time go and take a driver photo; reminder: When you went into the museum, go straight to the new trains and go take a... More

The museum contains dozens on real trains on display, including the N700, 300, 100 and 0 Shinkansen, along with a host of historical conventional rail cars. You can go inside most of the trains, as well. There are very nicely put together displays that cover the track gauges, daily operations, ticketing and reservation, and electric power details of each train.... More

The trains were fantastic you are able to get right up close to all the trains along with some great history of rail in Japan and the technology of the shinkansen and the new maglev trains, there is also a restaurant on site and a museum shop so you can take home a souvenir

Anyone with the slightest interest in train design, high-speed train travel and sophisticated maintenance and safety checks will enjoy this sophisticated museum. Japan railways is a highly profitable company, this museum is an investment showing the world what JR does best.

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. Not so many things to see, but my kids enjoyed the details of shinkansen models and speed. If you have small children, there was... More

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.
