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. The railway’s first steam locomotive (1898) and electric train (1928) are also preserved and on display.
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.
General admission: 200 yen
