A haven for train-lovers, the Tobu Museum is appropriately located under a set of raised train tracks. Showcasing the history of the Tobu Railway, the stars of the sprawling museum are the impressive full-sized train cars on display, such as the railway’s first steam locomotive (1898) and electric train (1924).
Some of the museum's most popular attractions include the user-operated train diorama that operates through a scale-model of the Sumida area, and the special steam engine show. For a special treat, the "Watching Promenade" is the closest you can get to trains at work!
With plenty of interactive exhibits and photo opportunities, this is a perfect stop for families with young children.
