“Okay for tourists”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

Kawasaki world is part of the bigger maritime museum which has a lot of history and models of all sorts of boats from the past century. I was in it mostly for kawasaki world which but you couldnt buy a ticket for just kawasaki. Interesting history of the company since the 1800s. Lots of things to see and do for kids. They had a cool flight simulator but apparently you have to be able to read japanese before they let you on (which I dont).
Overall, it was interesting but wouldn't go out of my way to visit.

“Gives Great Overview of the Entire Company”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

I have never learned so much about one company in a museum. This was much better than the Toyota museum because it showed the good times and the bad times of the company., It was interactive for the kids and there was a lot of photo ops

“Quite innovative & interesting exhibition”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

Located in Kobe Tower, it's usually part of a package (incl. viewing platform and Maritime Museum) Kawasaki World is quite an experience in its own right.
Interesting exhibitions with motorcycles, robots, speedboats and trains on display are prime examples of company's development in different decades.
Eco friendly, innovative solutions implemented and actively used on real scale models give you a good idea about Kawasaki and its place among greatest manufacturers in Japan's motor industry.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

You will learn that Kawasaki is much more than motorcycles. They are huge in shipbuilding, robotics, air travel and train manufacturing. Nice displays.
