    Circular inlet air Park air museum Jet engine incorporated in the design of building's Aviation Hall of Fame. The displayed period successive military aircraft, military aircraft / ground self-defense force operated aircraft. 0/1955-in like forties born in airplanes for many old military aircraft. Exhibits of valuable materials in our aviation history. More children, so enjoy airplane like adults. Hotel, shops and numerous air-related goods are sold. Outside the Museum, exhibits older transport aircraft of the United States. Also displayed domestic passenger plane YS-11 aircraft Park next to the station. (Good condition) off-site and on-site exhibits exhibit storage condition is good. Air Park Station on the Seibu Shinjuku line, approximately 10 minutes on foot.

    Aerial cradle (and instead of say, "Japan first flew in" is something like "started full-scale operation") they enhance the exhibition. During the actual seating in the cockpit. Animated history of Japan Airlines (for example women astronauts getting started), while for children to study.

    The Aviation Museum at Kokukoen Park has several older planes and helicopters which kids and adults can board as well as sit in the cockpits. It's not a bad way to get a feel for what sitting in these vehicles would be like, but is probably more fun for the kids and is especially popular for posing for pictures (there are even kid-sized pilot and aviator costumes for the kids to wear while taking shots). There are also several exhibits on flight and aerodynamics (Japanese only), and for a little extra money you can watch a brief, unrelated 40-min CG movie. Just outside the museum are displays of older planes, a large picnic area, and usually lots of hobbyists flying kites, gliders, and more.

    Great place... A small but beautiful collection with plenty of interactive displays and simulators. Fantastic IMAX add on cinema too. Well worth it. A long trip though, make plenty of time.

    Small aviation museum, nice displays. For the aviation enthusiast worth checking out if you are in the area. Kid friendly, with interactive educational exhibits. Some aircraft displays you can go inside aircraft
