  • 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.
  • Very good maritime musem and history of kawasaki industry
  • Nice attraction. Unfortunately one part of the exhibition was closed
