  • 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.
  • Indispensable when you come to the Otaru important spot! I know the history of Hokkaido have temiya station became disused land has an important cultural value! Even if one day the vehicle is carefully repair work of volunteers enjoy (lol)
