    The Museum is not great (is a part of the Museum of the sea), but it is very interesting. Surprising to see in how many sectors Kawasaki produces and has produced. There are also some pieces visitable internally (locomotive, train, helicopter, etc.) and some driving simulations.

    The classic bullet train and helicopter displays were a bit with the kids. The motorcycle display was also a must see.

    One of the best corporate museums I've seen. The robot show is especially cool.

    Located in Meriken Park the Kawasaki Museum is a fun place for families and kids. It's fairly small and doesn't take a great deal of time to pass through the exhibits, but the bullet train and model trains are always a hit with children. Definitely worth a visit if you're a motorcycle enthusiast.
