It is a 2-minute walk east of Fushimi Station, exit no. 4. The museum is open from 9:30am to 5pm and closed every Monday and every third Friday of the month.

FIRST FLOOR

No need to pull out a penny from your pocket because the entrance ticket is free for everyone. The museum is known for its futuristic duck character, and all instructions are in Japanese so you better get a pamphlet with an English version to know where you’re heading to.

To end my review, I would say that the Nagoya Electricity Museum is a must-see for families especially for those who have kids because they will really enjoy the interactive games and activities. The museum staff members also allow wheelchairs and provide baby strollers and a nursing room to visitors with infants. So be sure to add this attraction to your bucket list when you do a tour in Nagoya, Japan.
