Scmaglev And Railway Park, Nagoya-shi Reviews - Write a Review
Amazing. Maybe the best place I visited in Nagoya. I had second thoughts about visiting it due to having to take the subway out and the 1,000 yen admission, but it was well worth it! There are tons of trains you can explore both inside and out; it's like taking a time machine. Really great for taking photos of yourself. Additionally, there's a really huge and amazing diorama representing connections between Tokyo, Nagoya, and Osaka. I spent 2-3 hours at this museum. The area also has good views of some bridge and the sea. You must visit this museum!
Best if you are into trains and/or would want your kids interested in trains. This place takes you through time to discuss the history of trains in Japan and how they developed into what they are today. The place is interactive as there are games and a place where it lets you experience what it would be like if you were in a SCMAGLEV train. There is also a restaurant and a play area for kids. Elevators for wheelchairs are available as well.
The museum is really fascinating for me, especially since I came from a country that has little development in railway transportation. We spent about an hour and a half in the venue and enjoyed every minute of it. You get to see the evolution of trains in Japan and how train systems work.
I was done after 30 minutes. It's just a big hall full of trains. Not more, not less. Compared to the Toyota museum it's pricy (1,000 yen) - at the other place you can easily spend 2 hours and they only charge you half the amount.
A museum dedicated for train/transportation/engineering lovers! Good info on how trains became an integrated part of life in Japan. Pretty cool miniature city show with amazing details. Train conductor simulation was super fun and interesting. 2nd floor has children's play area with toy trains and tracks. A staff is there to sanitize the toys after each use (wow). Easy to navigate facility with ramps and elevators. Will come back!
