The museum was built by Tobu Railway Co., Ltd. in 1989 to commemorate the 90th anniversary of its foundation. It exhibits trains that used to serve the public, such as a steam locomotive of 1899, the year that coincides with the time of the company's foundation, and a wooden train that was in service in the 1920s. You can learn about the history of Japanese railway systems through the exhibition. There is also a simulation section, where you can experience the operation of the train and bus. This is popular among train enthusiasts. Children can experience the feeling of being a train operator by getting on an operator's compartment, sitting on an actual seat, and operating while looking at the monitor that displays the front view. There is also a panorama with a running 170-carriage model train, as well as an observation promenade at Higashi-mukojima Station where you can observe the wheels and engines of a running train at close range. The museum is close to the Higashi-mukojima Station on the Tobu Skytree Line.
