SCMAGLEV and Railway Park Tours

SCMAGLEV and Railway Park
Located in Nagoya and opened in 2011, the SCMAGLEV and Railway Park is owned by Central Japan Railways (JR Central). For train enthusiasts, families, or simply those with a passing interest in the history of railways in Japan, this is an interesting museum with a large collection of real trains and other attractions.

The museum charts the history and technological advances that accelerated high-speed rail services in Japan and features actual trains, from old steam locomotives, to the country’s bullet trains and the latest magnetic levitating trains. Many of the exhibits can be explored from the inside, or viewed from beneath, with detailed explanations regarding their operation and maintenance also displayed.

Some of the museum’s most popular attractions are the train simulators, which include driving simulations for both traditional and shinkansen trains, plus a train crew simulation, where visitors can experience life as a train conductor. The SCMAGLEV and Railway Park is also home to Japan's largest train dioramas.

Practical Info

SCMAGLEV and Railway Park can be reached from Nagoya by taking a train to Kinjofuto Station, the terminal stop on the Aonami Line. The journey takes around 25 minutes and trains depart approximately every 15 minutes. The simulators inside the museum cost an additional fee, and reservations must be made in advance at the information desk.
