[Aichi Museum of Flight]
Reach for the sky at this hands-on museum
Inside Nagoya Airport is the Aichi Museum of Flight—an aircraft museum where real aircraft with connections to Aichi Prefecture are on display, such as the YS-11, the first passenger aircraft to be produced in Japan after the war, which had its maiden flight at Nagoya Airport. The museum has no shortage of hands-on activities. Experience what it's like to be a pilot or a mechanic, have fun learning through building and experimenting in the "Science Lab", and enjoy the feeling of flying in the "Flying Box". Visitors can also watch real aircraft taking off up close from the observation deck. Button pins designed by Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama are also for sale. Be sure to stop by the museum cafe as well.
