Not great. But, if you have time to kill at the Maglev station, you can spend about 30 minutes here. History of Maglev trains and technologies in Germany and Japan. And, how the Maglev train works, they have samples of track etc..

If you are interested to find out more about your journey and the technology behind the world's fastest train, then take a visit. It is either free or reduced entry if you show your maglev journey ticket...so ask to retain it at the barrier.
