What is The Hiroshima City Transportation Museum?
At the Hiroshima City Transportation Museum, there are more than 2,000 vehicle models and limited time exhibitions, and actual jet aircraft turbine fins and screws of ships are displayed. In addition to being able to learn the history of vehicles, you can enjoy operating bicycles and trains in the interactive exhibits. 1st floor and the outdoor plaza are free of charge, but 2nd floor and beyond are paid areas.
Enjoy The Vehicles of The World
On the 2nd floor, models of aircraft, ships, railway transportation, and bicycles are on display. You can also find out how vehicles were invented, and the details behind how they got their present day form.
There are many people who become unknowingly fascinated with the exhibits that number over 2,000. There may also be exhibits that make you think “How nostalgic!”.
This is a model of the “Eba Tenma Sculling Boat” that is used to carry the shrines used in the Miyajima Kangen-sai Festival. It is also designated as a Hiroshima City designated important intangible cultural asset.
Experience Riding with A Simulator
On the 2nd floor, there is a simulator where you can experience riding a bicycle or train (Mobius Loop). Simulators where you can experience driving a train are rare, so children who love vehicles will surely be pleased. How about trying it together as parent and child?
On the 3rd&4th floor of the museum is an atrium, where there is a huge panoramic model of the virtual city called “Vehicle City” on display.
You can actually operate vehicles such as trams and ropeways with the panorama model.
Enjoy Interesting Bicycles Outside
In the outdoor plaza, there are interesting bicycles that you can try out at ￥100 for 30 minutes. The way they look is certainly unique, but so is the manner or riding these bikes!
There are also many bicycles available that a parent and child can operate together, so how about taking advantage of that by all means?
