  • Very informative. Truly enjoyed the last exhibit: hydrogen hybrid engine. But the transformation, which was started by a gutsy call, was the result of hard work and tenacity.  more »
  • Inspection invited eight friends to traveling for a month with children and friends Tour 2 visits, but exhibits a lot and would never get bored. You can feel the difficulties and is very surprised at the evolution of textile machinery and to try new things, feel the hardship of producing a car that's important. Seemingly tiresomely (that) to see the surprising and studied.

  • Quite interesting museum to visit if you are in Nagoya. There are three main exhibition areas. One for Toyota's motor vehicle business. Quite extensive history and exhibits on their motor vehicles and production/assembly line technology. There is a small interactive area within this exhibition for kids which is good fun. There is a separate interactive play area for kids to experience some of Toyota's technology. There is a set schedule for entry into and time allowed in this area. Remember to get a ticket at the desk opposite to the entry for the time you want to get into this area. There is a separate area which exhibits history of Toyota's technology/business in textile production.
  • One of the best (if not the best) tech and science museums I have ever been to. They have a amazing lot of exhibited machines that are still plugged in and working including a 400 ton press and painting robots as well as a huge steam engine. Everything is explained in a detailed and detail loving way. Great experience for children and nerdy and also not so nerdy techies!
  • One of Nagoya's famous attraction. If you are not into cars you will be as this is a very great place to visit to learn about how Toyota motors started and the genius behind the man who started. Very inspirational for all those working or looking to start their own business as it contains insights on how Mr. Toyoda experienced the initial setbacks of his business and the eventual turnaround to become one of the worlds leading automobile manufacturers.
  • This museum was so much more than I expected it to be in such a surprising way. I didn't know that Toyota had so much history behind it as being more than an automaker. Such great demonstrations by staff and excellent exhibits to look at in order to fully understand Toyota's history from the beginning to its current state. I would highly recommend anyone visiting Nagoya to visit this museum.
  • Very impressive, well-presented museum full of interesting technology and a great kids play area. The main exhibits are really only interesting to engineers and car-lovers, which means I knocked off a star because I despise cars. Even so, I couldn’t help but be impressed with the quality of the displays and how well the information is presented. This is absolutely worth a visit, even for just a couple of hours, though the car-inclined could spend half a day here.
