  • Many railway cars were displayed outdoors. But I feel a little bit lonely, very bad state of preservation. An UN force of a steam locomotive ran outdoors.

  • Includes old steam loco and passenger car that you can board. Fun interactive switching game. Good history with some working dioramas. Nice turntable display with locos over time. Spent about an hour....  more »
  • Good train museum located in Otaru, take a bit of time to walk there from the canal, children should like it here.  more »

  • It's a very basic museum, but if you like train history, you may enjoy it.
  • The ground floor of this museum focused exclusively on Hokkaido's railway network, with exhibits described in both Japanese and English. Upstairs was less well organised with no English labelling. Overall a slightly disappointing experience.
  • Not much to see in here. However, there's a small coffee bar with some excellent beer and coffee. Some antiquities for sale at reasonable prices. Found a cool old ship's flag for 1500 yen.
  • A good place to know about the expanding history of Otaru and Hokkaido.
  • Children are like a two-story structure, history, science, etc., where and when you add the various exhibits. All pipe is 300 yen to the spectator. Canal Museum visit costs 500 yen. If playing in a dome theater just in time to see the water. The Museum Shop is very poor and do not have a decent souvenir points.
