  • I went to the Kobe Maritime Museum. Look inside is for kids to be honest, did not expect so much, and were surprised. From the history of Kawasaki Heavy River products, etc. Were the facilities for adults and children. I think I should stop is near the tower and then kinda hungry time.

  • 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.
  • Good selection of things, though some of the exhibits are in need of updating. One or two things did not work fully when I visited in May 2016.
  • Ways more than motorcycles, they made anything from bullet trains to robots and big ships. cheap entry ticket and included the visit to Kobe maritime museum. lot of fun for kids in all ages. click into their website and print the coupon to save 100 yen per person.
  • Fun, interesting exhibits. Amazing!
  • This is a pretty cool museum! Do you research and you can get a good discount before coming. The museum is a mix between an old maritime museum with tons of breathtaking models of ships and the Kawasaki museum, which is filled to the brim with classic motorcycles, a chunk of the shinkansen, and some very cool robot displays. If you take your time and read through all of the informational panels, you'll be surprised by just how vast Kawasaki's influence has been in the world. Good for a quick stop if you're already in Kobe!
