This new museum was opened by JR Central on 14th March 2011.
Some of the exhibits came from the closed Sakuma Rail Park.
It has a focus on the Shinkansen stock, the prototype Maglev system, and other local rolling stock.
Kinjofuto station (Aonami line), Nagoya, in Nagoya docklands.
Kinjofuto is the last station on the private Aonami line, that runs every 15 minutes and takes 25 minutes from nagoya station to the dockland terminus. The museum is adjacent to the station, just across a small road.
The following are on display: locos, Maglev car, Shikansen vehicles, railcars and carriages.
The first hall from the entrance is an audio-visual display of speed record holders - steam, Shinkansen and Maglev.
Most exhibits are in the main hall and accessible, but there is a line-up of rolling stock behind a barrier at the far end.
Exhibition rooms are to the side and on two floors.
