Many old models of train are available, refreshing the memories of our oldies. Interesting and informative to kids. Have small trains to ride and mock driving games. The kids really enjoyed.

It is really brief, a few train cars being demonstrated only and a brief introduction of Kyushu's railway development in the main building. There's not so much to show as the one in Omiya since it's focus on Kyushu. The gift shop is large and...More

Nice for family day, especially good for railway fans. The museum is right beside the JR station, within 5 mins walk. You may experience being a train captain and drive your train, make it arrives on time.
