  • Very clean museum, not too big but it's good here to experienced driving train and learnt how complicate of Tokyo metro/train underground systems. The art of Tokyo metro lines model performs quite exciting!
  • Awesome for train fans! A lot of content is Japanese-only, but you'll still learn plenty from the English content (and visuals), and there is a lot of awesome interactive models, including a very realistic train control simulator (and a permanent guide who will explain and guide you). Come before noon on a workday to avoid crowds. Note that Toei subway lines are not mentioned in this museum and its timelines.
  • Interesting and convenient to the nearest station. Children may not find interesting as much as it might seem: lots of text on the walls.
  • is pretty big, worth the visit, good to go with kids. Has lots of interesting and interactive things to do.
  • Right under a Subway station, makes a whole lot of sense.
