The Numaji Transport Museum is quite a distance from the city centre, but a relatively quick ride on the Astramline, a quirky, rubber tired train that runs directly from the Hondori shopping arcade. On the face of it, this museum is purely for railway geeks, but given that many visitors to Hiroshima have a special interest in learning more about... More

I went on a Scout excursion with 40 noisy boys, you have to take to local train to get there, then a bit of a walk, but nicely done and interesting. Needs more in English.

Not too close to the city center, but if you really like trains and things that move, and have kids aged 5-10, and have exhausted everything else in the city, it's worth a trip.

You can enjoy with your family or friends to look around transports such as vehicles trams. It's easy to reach at this museum from Hiroshima city centre by Astram.

First of all, you get to it by riding the Astram, a monorail type train in the sky. This museum shows the fantastic progress Japan has made in transportation. While it is true there are many models, there are also full sized simulations. You can pilot a boat into a harbor. I crashed every time. BTW - after the nuclear... More

I didn't see a single full-size car, boat, or airplane, and the only full-size train is a single Hiroshima street car parked outside. Aside from a collection of motorcycles and scooters and a few interpretive pieces (e.g. engine cutaways), it's all models. And while 1/80 scale models are a great way to see the difference in size between a Boeing... More
