Visitors can explore the evolution of automobile design and technology, from the birth of gasoline-powered automobiles at the end of the 19th century to the present day. In addition, almost all vehicles are “dynamically preserved” and can be driven.

Explore the “Automobile Culture Showroom” within the “Cultural Gallery,” where around 4,000 cultural items linked to automobiles, including posters, car toys, and mascots, are showcased under the theme “Mobility and Culture.” Using roughly 800 miniature cars as a chronological guide, you can delve into the rich car culture crafted by enthusiasts.

Private guided English language tours are available for free but require a reservation more than a week before the planned visit upon request.

SCMAGLEV and Railway Park

Visitors can explore a variety of exhibits, including real historic train cars from various historic types of trains, interactive displays. Inside a theater designed to resemble the cabin of the Superconducting Maglev trains, currently being built between Tokyo and Osaka reaching speeds of up to 500 km/h (310 mph), visitors can simulate the experience of traveling on the Yamanashi Maglev Line through computer-generated (CG) footage.

Among the exhibits is Doctor Yellow, a business bullet train that inspects overhead wires, signals, and tracks while running to ensure the safe operation of the Shinkansen and is said to bring good luck when seen.
