Scmaglev And Railway Park - Review
If you are train geek, this could easily be your favorite museum ever. Where to start? First, there are the 39 retired train carriages that you can climb into and underneath. These range from ancient steam engines to the latest maglev models. Exhibits inside and around the trains explain all you need to know about them - operation, construction and maintenance. The second floor of the museum is more kid oriented, including train simulators. And if you have a thing for miniature trains, check out the incredibly detailed dioramas with miniaturized recreations of Osaka, Nagoya and Tokyo. There's also a historical collection of train artifacts.

Scmaglev And Railway Park, Nagoya-shi Reviews
Visiting the railway park was so much fun! I've seen a documentary about it on NHK World and I just had to visit it (cause I'm a big train nerd) and it was even better than expected. One minus though; most descriptions and explanations only come in Japanese, so definitely get an audio guide if you can't read Japanese (the audio guides are free). Entry is ¥1000 for an adult, which is absolutely fine. Learning about Japanese train history was so much fun.
This is definetly a place to visit in Nagoya. Especially if you love train about the history and the recent technology. There are simulators you should try. Looking at all the trains and one by one will make you forget that you have spend hours enjoying this place.
Was really good. You get to see the fastest train in the world here that went 581 km/h (but not gonna tell you how 😋) and really old trains that offer the history of Japan. Obviously it's in Japanese but there is English available which is a bonus. Even the simulator was in English to help understand what was going on. Spent roughly 2 hours there.
Nice museum, worth the entry price. Most things are explained in English as well, but some details are missing. Best experience for me was the train driver simulator. A ~10 minute game is just 100¥. The JR people have the funny habit of overexaggerating the beauty of the color scheme of their trains.
A museum where you can see the development of railway technology development in Japan from the very beginning. There are complete facilities. Clean & comfortable rest room, restaurant, souvenir shop and playground.
