About Kobe Maritime Museum
The Kobe Maritime Museum was opened in April 1987 to commemorate the 120th anniversary of the opening of the port of Kobe. The theme of the museum is “Sea, Ship, Port”. The white frame of the building reflects the sails and waves of a ship, and the contrast between the green Rokko Mountain and the red Kobe Port Tower makes a strong impression.
It is lit up in blue at night and becomes a major symbol of Kobe Port. In addition to the super-conducting electromagnetic propulsion ship Yamato 1, the ship of the future is on public display outside, and the latest video systems, such as the 360-degree multiplex and multi-camera projection, are very impressive. In May 2006, Kawasaki World was opened next to the museum, introducing Kawasaki Heavy Industries’ technology and history in various fields of land, sea and air.
How to get there
10 minutes on foot from Hong Kong dollar subway station
2-2, Hajiba-cho, Chuo-ku, Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture
The museum is connected to Kawasaki World, and it is worth a visit to see many models of ships, to learn about the history of Kobe Port in the past, and to see the history of Kawasaki Heavy Industries.
This museum is a symbol of the port of Kobe, with its unique shape and first-class design, and its impressive white structure reflecting the sails of a ship. You can take the Kobe One-Day Tour bus directly to the Maritime Museum, and the starting point of the loop bus is under the Kobe Tower. It is a museum of the history of Kobe since the opening of the port. There are model ships, motorcycles and airplanes inside, which are rather miscellaneous and not as interesting as the Kyoto Train Museum. You can buy a joint ticket with Kyoto Tower, 60 soft currency. Not particularly recommended, just look outside.

This is probably the most systematic of the maritime museums I’ve seen, and is actually a history of Japan’s foreign trade.
It’s called the Maritime Museum! Not maritime
Have not been there, to complete the task to give a rating. Not as a basis for reference.
Osaka’s Seawalker Museum is good, especially with elementary and junior high school children, worth a visit.
Very beautiful at night. But it is a little lonely in Minato-cho.
Reflecting the moonlight, and the red de Kobe Port Tower.
Located in Kobe American Park, next to Kobe Tower, the museum exhibits models of various ships, introduces the history of Kobe Port, and exhibits port-related materials.

The venue is large and suitable for older children, especially boys who are interested in trains, cars and motorcycles, and children can play inside for most of the day.
