“Nice Museum to spend an hour or two”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

These places bring out my inner geek. I was travelling on my own but noticed that the children who attended seemed to really enjoy the place. Older teenagers may find it a bit boring.

I enjoyed the effort that have gone into some of the displays.

Highly recommended.

“Good experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

It is a very good place to learn about the development of trains in Japan. Very good display of the trains. The model trains are captivating. Must see for kids.

“Just Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

It was average - not super fantastic but if you have nothing else to do, then this is a good way to spend a wet afternoon like we did. Kids did not complain and went round the whole place, playing and exploring.
