Kyushu Railway Museum The museum (former Kyushu Railway HQ building) is just next to Mojiko Train Station. I think the museum location is befitting as Mojiko is the starting point of Kyushu railway in the past. When cargo unloaded from the ships in the port, you would require the railway system to transport them out to the various places. That... More

Museum is less than 5 minute walk from the Mojiko station. We had a JR pass, and it was a perfect side trip to get our money's worth from the pass. There is a 50% discount on the museum entrance fee for JR pass holders, and you get to see how the Japanese train evolved. It was interesting to see... More

Nice for family day, especially good for railway fans. The museum is right beside the JR station, within 5 mins walk. You may experience being a train captain and drive your train, make it arrives on time.

Not much to see and try not to park your car in the West end of the museum. They do not have a max charge per day. Most other car parks in Mojiko including the other car-park in the main entrance of the museum has a daily maximum charge.

There are several railway museum in Japan. This museum is one of the most smallest railway museum. Its building was renovated from an old building which was built about 100 years ago. A lot of materials and products about a railway history in Kyushu were exhibited. The most favorite one was an original model of SL train. Several rare trains... More

This is a nice museum and would be fun for kids, especially the opportunity to drive a train in the simulator. My only complaint is that there is little English

Wen spent time looking for the parking lot and couldn't believe so far it was located. It was more than 5 mins walk to the actual museum. On a hot summer day of 36C, it was impossible for us to walk there with children. However, because it is a station area, there is nowhere else to park. We eventually have... More
