  • One word ....awesome! Glad that we went despite the initial apprehension since the museum wasn't located at the city centre. The trip was definitely worth it. For those who grew up with Toyopet, Celic...  more »

  • Fun for all ages! Walk through a historic time-line of the World's notable automobiles. The cars are well maintained with beautiful paint jobs - each vehicle has a brief placard noting features and significance. An awesome experience, even for the non-auto-enthusiasts.
  • Really clean and well organized time capsule of the automobile industry that is pretty reasonably accessible from Nagoya. There are more than just Toyota cars here, and the cars have been reconstructed beautifully. In addition, the staff speak excellent English (and are, of course, very modest about it). If you happen to be in the area, it is a worthwhile trip (approximately $10 per person, $8 if you bring your AAA card).
  • I love cars, and this museum has a large collection of common and rare ones. The signage is in English so no problems with translating, and the staff speaks English as well.
  • Fantastic exhibit of cars from all places and times. The bicycle section on Japanese bicycles was a high light for me.
  • For any lover of cars it is worth heading to Toyota's Automobile Museum in Nagoya. It is highly interactive and there is a range of vehicles from across the companies history.
