This place, as well as the historic Moji station, was an interesting combination! It's not a very large collection of locomotives, but it is worth the visit!

Having recently visited the expansive Railway Museum in Kyoto, this Kyushu Railway History Museum may be small by comparison, but it is nonetheless an essential part of the late 19th Century / early 20th Century Mojiko Retro Town experience. The Museum, [adjacent to the current...More

Many old models of train are available, refreshing the memories of our oldies. Interesting and informative to kids. Have small trains to ride and mock driving games. The kids really enjoyed.

It is really brief, a few train cars being demonstrated only and a brief introduction of Kyushu's railway development in the main building. There's not so much to show as the one in Omiya since it's focus on Kyushu. The gift shop is large and...More
