Kawasaki Good Times World - Review
The Kawasaki Heavy Industries Group has been around in the city of Kobe for over a hundred years. Though most people think of the Kawasaki brand as associated to motorcycles, the company started out as a ship manufacturing concern. Over the years the company has been associated to multiple other heavy industries such as aviation, space travel, and railways, and even the Rainbow Bridge in Tokyo. Thus, the main attractions at this museum are models of the various crafts and technologies the company has worked on. There is a flight simulator, a train simulator, a jet ski motor, and a huge theater which showcases how ships are built.

Kawasaki Good Times World, Kobe Reviews
Yet another corporate sponsored museum. Dear Kawasaki, if you are going to have an interactive quiz, either get the questions, or the answers, RIGHT. If you are going to have a flight simulator that is the only really interactive display, have 2 so disappointed kiddies don't have to wait 60 minutes. Most displays are little more than the company products set up in front of a picture with the bare minimum of information. No physics or practical engineering interactions here to demonstrate the link between science and product. The history display was a little more informative.
What a great museum! The display are great and there is plenty of things to interact with, Although a little aged now. They have a flight simulator and you can step inside the “cockpit” of the bullet train. The staff are friendly and the building itself is beautiful. The gift shop is small, but what it lacks in size it makes up for it it’s huge prices! I’d avoid it.
Fantastic place to go for young and old....Great informative and interactive fun displays, simulators, theatre, child's interactive educational play area...entrance was free as an addition to Kobe Maritime Museum.
Smallish museum, but very cool exhibits. Didn't realize Kawasaki had such a broad scope of engineering projects. There are some nice model exhibits of motorcycles/trains/helicopters/etc you can get into and the little theater shows some pretty interesting videos. We got a combined pass that allows you to go up the Kobe Port Tower to the observation deck which we highly recommend. The view of the harbor is stunning from up there.
Could have focused more on the motorcycles though I understand the need for the company to illustrate its entire range of engineering products and prowess. Parts of the museum were a little tacky (a bike simulator that you can't counter steer in!) But glad I got to take a photo on a Ninja!
