If you are big fun of train and high speed rail, you must visit this museum because it has a lot of information and shows history about train and Shinkansen. Recommended!

We had a great time and loved the photo op they had of the 700 series driver seat. A lot of the text has no English translation but enough do. Cafe was underwhelming but the packaging is so cute! Simulators are also done via lottery but only announced in Japanese and we are dumb Australians :( It's a while out... More

Visiting this museum can satisfy my curiosity about the Japanese bullet train technology. Although the location is quite far from the city, but with good transport and information this museum can be visited easily. Facilities such as toilets, dining and souvenirs are available. There are alternative activities for children.

Nice place to view the train history of Japan. The museum is spacious and trains were layout nicely for you to walk around and you can also go inside the train to view the seating layout of various train model from different era. Spend around 1 hour in the museum.

Being a 30 min ride out from Nagoya Station, this one isn't for the time strapped traveller. But if you have time, it's not too bad, quite well run, I didn't get the Audio Guide, but it might be useful.

We're big train lovers and we have decided to visit this museum first thing when we stayed in Nagoya. It's definitely a paradise for people like us - first of all, it is enormous in size and it takes a lot of time to see the whole collection of beautifully arranged trains there! I enjoyed this place more than I... More

If you like trains, you should definitely leave the center of Nagoya and head to this museum. 100 years of train history are shown here with different objects, you can go inside of most trains. Moreover, there is a possibility to "taste" magnetic train and try to steer different types of train with simulators.

The displays are ( of course) huge and housed in an aircraft hangar sized building about a 30 minute train ride from Nagoya Central Station. There are great views over the huge dock area. It was very interesting to see the Maglev train - plus there is a 5 minute ride in the simulator - 500km an hour ! Pros... More

I really enjoyed this museum, it was definitely a great experience. Japan is known for its trains and this is a great way to learn about how it works and all the different details. The simulators are nice as well.
