This museum has subway and tram exhibits.


Akaike subway station (Tsurumai line), Nisshin, Aichi. It takes about 30 minutes from central Nagoya to reach the last station on the blue Tsurami line, from where the line becomes Meitetsu Railway only. Leave by exit 2 (follow the museum signs), turn right at the top of the stairs and immediately right. After two blocks you reach the dual-carriageway road (R153). Turn left on to the side road/path before the main road and cross the main road at the junction and turn right back up the path on the other side.
