Nagoya Electricity Museum is just one of the science-related attractions in Nagoya,Japan where you can enjoy science and at the same time, be knowledgeable about how electricity is vital to our daily lives.
The museum is included in the 9 bus stop of the Nagoya Sightseeing Tour Bus. (Read more about Nagoya Sightseeing Tour Bus).
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.
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.
