It is part of the maritime museum. It was interesting to see the advancement of technology and how it benefited the city of Kobe.

It's part of the Kobe Maritime Museum. I had no idea that Kawasaki Industries had such an intimate tie with Kobe. It is also quite a forward-thinking company!

The facility gives an excellent overview of the wide range of products that have been created by Kawasaki. It's located along the Kobe waterfront next to many other interesting places. It's a great place to take kids. It has hands on and interactive displays to keep them interested, but would be better with even more of them.

It is actually part of the maritime museum. It's not big at all, I spent half hour in the maritime part and another half hour in the Kawasaki part. You're gonna love it if you love stuff like trains, motorbikes etc.

Very clean, organised modern museum. Beautiful ships models to look and study. Further round a small but very good display of some of the most famous Kawasaki bikes, very much quality rather than the quantity you can get at some collections. A great 'hands on ' section of trains and planes designed mainly for children of all ages between it... More

Went here very jet lagged and tired but as a lifelong motorcyclist and general petrol head this place was fascinating. Kawasaki makes a lot of stuff and I mean a lot - some of it is completely crazy too - put pioneering engineering - proper Japanese white lab coat stuff. I highly recommend a couple of hours here....great...

Was here during last autumn after a short visit to Kobe's Meriken Park. A great place of learning i.e aeronautic engineering and superbikes technology. Pretty excited to see the actual prototype of Kawasaki Z1400 plus some "shinkasen" stuff. Will definitely return since this is a great place to visit with a teen children.Highly recommended.

One of the day trips you can do from Osaka (or I guess even Kyoto) is to visit the city of Kobe. Kobe is maybe mostly known for the big earthquake hitting the are in the 90's. But it is also home of this museum and some other wonderful sights worth a visit. For me Kawasaki is only the motorbikes,... More
