About Scmaglev And Railway Park, Nagoya-shi
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.

Scmaglev And Railway Park, Nagoya-shi Reviews
The newer trains were so interesting for me, but they had a few older ones too. Not super old, but old enough to have an antique feel to them! They also had a miniature replica of the Tokyo area made of small figurines. They had the miniature trains operating too. Very cool to see.
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!
Nice way to spend an hour or two . Free lockers are available and welcomed. We enjoyed walking through all the train cars and looking at the impressive rail diorama. Only complaint is there were no microwave to heat up bento boxes purchased there, which is super odd. They sell food for lunch and provide seating but no means to warm food up.
A must-see for railway enthusiasts. Buy tickets from self-service ticket machines using cash 💸 or ICOCA 💳 card, then give it to the entrance clerk. You will be given a map that includes ticket numbers to enter the drawing for a chance to operate a regular or shinkensin train. But this ticket must be put in the entry box. Make sure to do this -- I did not know entry was automatic, and missed out as a result. Make sure to check out the model railway with a simulation of a full day!
Very cool museum that let's you tour lots of cool skinkasens as well as learn about how they are operated and maintained and the history of rail in Japan. Well worth the visit even if you're not into trains.
