Numaji Transportation Museum

Numaji Transportation Museum is the only science museum in the Chugoku/Shikoku Region to include land, air and sea vehicles as part of its overall transportation theme. The museum, with a collection of approximately 2,000 scale model vehicles in its second-floor exhibition hall, displays the transformation of vehicles and transportation over the years from the past to the present.

The spacious atrium that spans the third and fourth floors includes "Vehicle City", which, at a diameter of 20 meters, is one of Japan's largest transportation dioramas, allowing visitors to control a wide variety of vehicles through levers and buttons. Visitors may also peruse books about vehicles and transportation and view video materials in the first floor library and its video booths. The open-air square also offers "Fun Bikes" (requiring a separate rental fee), along with the "Atomic Bomb Train" display, which teaches us a solemn lesson about the great importance of peace.

Plus, with weekend and holiday arts and crafts classes and movie clubs, science shows and more, this museum, where one can have a lot of fun while learning a lot about vehicles and transportation, is truly an appealing place to visit.
