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.

I really enjoyed this train museum! If you like trains then this is a see. Easy to get to from Nagoya station, ¥700 round trip cost on the Aonami Line. Admission is ¥1000 for adult. Lots of trains there that you can go in and interactive learning displays too. Customary gift shop on your way out.
Awesome exhibits of trains, not just rolling stock, also with a diorama of the train from Tokyo to Osaka via Nagoya. This model has got moving trains and other nice things, a Ferris Wheel, rising hot air balloon, and a concert, running from dawn till dusk. The show is about 20 min long, with each show starting at the top of the hour or half past the hour. We went on a train operator simulation as well, which is super cool. There is a ticket machine that prints tickets with name and train number. The Maglev section is also quite nice. There is a children's corner on the second floor where children can play with tracks and trains.
Great place to check out and easy on the pocket dosh! it's very well kept, the trains make for some amazing up close viewing and If you're lucky even a chance to buy a ticket for the simulator (around 500yen) worth it for a bit of fun.
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.
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.
