What I liked: Everything! So many hands on attractions! So many other attractions! Right next to the station! A cute entry. Cheap admission! Awesome souvenir store. You can bring food - supermarket next door! Clean, tidy and well presented. Attention to detail. A must for anyone! What could be improved? Almost nothing! Souvenirs were a little bit expansive. And remember... More

This museum is very easy to find as it is located right next to the only exit of Miyazakidai station. The museum has quite an exhibit of movable HO scale model trains, some old train carriages and buses, and some simulators. I had been to this museum a year before, and it has changed a bit from last year. I... More

It was very fun to be in this museum. They have bus simulator and a variety of example of buses and train. It's also fun to eat inside a old train in the museum.

We took the trip from Tokyo to spend half a day in this Train museum. It was well worth the time it took to get there (on a train!) and my boys could have gladly stayed for another half day. There is so much to see and do in this museum. Huge model railway to look at, train carriages from... More

We've been to this museum a couple of times because my son loves both the bus and trains. The entrance is only 100 yen. He can spend hours there. Going up and down the buses and also there is train simulator. There are only vending machines in the museum, it's best to get some lunch pack or some snacks if... More

For children who love vehicles (and what kid doesn't?)This little museum is well worth the trip into Kawasaki for a half-day excursion. Aside from the vending machines on the first floor, there are few restaurants in the area so it is best to plan in advance for your food arrangements.

Brought our 6 year old here after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. He enjoyed himself thoroughly going up and down the different trains and buses. We stayed there for a couple of hours and had great fun! What a gem!

A pretty small museum, but great fun for little kids. As far as I can remember, the entrance fee is about 100 yen for adults and free for young children. The kids can try their hand at operating model trains -- and real trains, too, with a simulator screen. Might be interesting for adult train buffs as well, although the... More
