  • History of Kawasaki heavy industries, the company that makes products and Museum experience. In a shareholder special benefit plan was admitted free of charge. That white nets watched from a Meriken Park over the years? The did not know until now under the objects in this museum. So advanced was not very familiar with Kawasaki heavy industries, Ltd. and some enjoy children while at the same time you can feel little attraction. Is a Flight Simulator, I wanted to try, but had been 40 minutes wait so I gave up. Intoxicated with video in front of more than I thought I looked so similar to Arcade Racing simulation of motorcycle, it gave up in the middle. By train: GO! The children were occupied by the 入ri込memasenn of the adults I was. Went without expecting much from a free ticket, and is surprisingly good.

  • Could have focused more on the motorcycles though I understand the need for the company to illustrate its entire range of engineering products and prowess. Parts of the museum were a little tacky (a bike simulator that you can't counter steer in!) But glad I got to take a photo on a Ninja!
  • Smallish museum, but very cool exhibits. Didn't realize Kawasaki had such a broad scope of engineering projects. There are some nice model exhibits of motorcycles/trains/helicopters/etc you can get into and the little theater shows some pretty interesting videos. We got a combined pass that allows you to go up the Kobe Port Tower to the observation deck which we highly recommend. The view of the harbor is stunning from up there.
  • The classic bullet train and helicopter displays were a bit with the kids. The motorcycle display was also a must see.
  • 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.
  • One of the best corporate museums I've seen. The robot show is especially cool.
