The Nex Plaza Nagoya Expressway is a free museum dedicated to expressways (kosokudoro) in Nagoya and a favorite of parents with car-obsessed kids at the weekend. There are lots of hands-on and interactive exhibits and fun quizzes.
Children can drive Nagoya's expressways in a a simulator in a converted Mini as well as plan their own route to drive on another machine.
There are models of cars and information on how expressways and highway tunnels are built in ways to keep inconvenience to the public to a minimum.
