  • In 30minutah drive from Nagoya is a museum. Excellent exposure. On the first floor of the whole story summarized the global automotive industry, machines stand for years. 2-3 floors-only Japanese machines and their evolution. If you are fans of Japanese machines-well worth a visit.

  • I took the car's favorite foreign friends. From Toyota in the world should be more visitors from abroad I'm sure. English is a little bit more shall I joyfully and thought. But from the Japanese I normally enjoyed. Man devises car is exhibited, and not interested in the car, so enjoy

  • It is a museum you can see the wisdom of mankind in the automotive field. It is a grandstand classic cars starts production at the end of the 1800's, development of automotive technology in Japan and adapted to social changes, especially motor vehicles are not interested in content. Got the impression that this one came across the DeLorean and Tucker. In his solo tour is tour time is 4 hours. It is recommended that planned on going to the Mall one day here. Note parking is relatively small; 11-end of that visit I went with the Linimo Sunday around midnight or earlier, was OK. It will soon open an ion of Nagakute battlefield before, so to be recognized as the new outing spots East of Nagoya City.

  • 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.
