  • Toyota Automobile Museum was founded in 1989, is close to the living (^ ◇ ^;)., science came to visit for the first time, car is unbearable,! Restaurant was too slow is not seen because there were so many elderly relatives now look slowly and would like to use only the restaurant provides meals and snacks together tastes pretty good, so it is recommended

  • Throughout the history of the car, learning is part of the history of modern industry. Exhibition of popular car model T Ford personally came out in the textbook and the kids I saw was good. Old commercial phrase or slogan. Yet in the Toyota Automobile Museum, with exhibits, acknowledging the achievements of the third-party rival Nissan (Datsun and Prince), Honda, I'm impressed. I felt the Grand Champion.

  • I went with 3-year-old boy, children are just tired (&gt; _ <), restaurant children's lunch is pretty I'd have liked!. In specialties like Curry, I ate the Curry was so tasty. Since the 40s adults nostalgic!

  • 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).
  • Honestly I'm not a Toyota Fans, I'm a Mercedes/Honda fans, but I'm glad I came here, every motorhead should come here once, this is one of the part of Automobile History, and there's LFA prototype-00, damm I wished I can step on that LFA and start the engine.
  • Excellent car museum with a vast collection of "Western" oldtimers and Japanese cars from all epochs. I would definitely recommend getting an audio guide, as it offers very detailed information and covers most of the cars on display. I also enjoyed the small exhibition in the Annex, as it put the development of the cars and the automotive industry into a social context. The only, albeit rather small disappointment was the in-house restaurant...
  • Pieces of Motoring History across all makes. Compact chronological layout up to the 70s. With a new annex connected. ¥1000 /adult
  • Cars are a big part of history, and this Museum has some priceless parts. Not only Toyota, but several classics from around the world. Take a couple hours and peruse history and the future.
