Railway Exhibtion at Sayama Museum
We have been to a number of their exhibitions over the years and they never disappoint. There is a park right beside the museum too, Inariyama Park, and a little cafe in the museum that is quite nice. They have children’s meals and kaki-kori (shaved ice). There is a nice view of Inariyama Park from the cafe.

The railway exhibition at Sayama Municipal Museum will have a number of model railway displays as well a play area with plarail and other train toys. There is also a railway history corner.
During the period of the exhibition you can also book to do some crafts, which each have an additional cost. Also, on July 28th and 29th they have a special free event in conjunction with Inariyama Park. They will have a mini train, a bouncy castle and a dress up event during this time.

Railway Exhibition Access:
The museum is a 3 minute walk from the Inariyama kouen station on the Seibu Ikebukuro Line or you can get a bus from the west exit of the Seibu Shinjuku Line Sayama City Station to Inariyama koen.
It is about a 15 minute from the Sayama Interchange of the Ken-o expressway or 20 minutes from the Kawagoe Interchange of the Kanetsu expressway. The museum and the restaurant share parking and it is free. Spaces are quite limited in the car park beside the museum, so it is not uncommon to have to wait for a parking space to come free. However, you can also use the park’s car park and walk over.
For both museum and cafe: 04-2955-3804
