  • We went on a Wednesday not busy at all, easy to get there, reasonably priced, kids got a bit bored looking at all the things on the display floor but plenty of bottoms to press kids loved that, the gu...  more »
  • I think it's fun to know that Toyota's logo was formerly called Akio. ^^ into the area where a little friend plays, if you want to take the card early, then go to that place and line up, you can play for a little while, each person can take some spare parts to build a car to come out ( Each section is the same, but when you take the parts, you can tell that the car was born. I think it's worth it.

  • Tedium anyway, lots. Hotel staff politely thank the staff. Fabric-car up in half a day. 回renakute after that corner is in the interest of time, unfortunately. I would enjoy without a doubt if you are interested in the technology.

  • Very informative. Never thought I'd get so much pleasure from learning about developments in weaving. There are excellent demonstrations by the staff too. The section on how a motor car works is particularly fascinating...there are interactive demonstrations with examples of each part. Following this, there is a large ground space dedicated to the assembly line, including exhibits showing robots at work. Don't forget to watch the robot playing the violin - he/she plays at specific times.
  • A great historical museum about industrial engineering. Anyone interested in the fields of textiles, machining, metallurgy, automation, robotics, automobiles, and overall engineering things should give it a visit. The setting is very cool it is a preserved textile factory. And it is huge. Bigger than expected. The exhibits are extremely well done with working models of manythings and some actual working looms and heavy machinery. There is also an enormous functioning steam engine. Part way through you can even take a break and listen to a robot play violin. Tours are in English and Japanese. Location is close to the Nagoya station area and is easily walkable. The souvenir shop is hilarious with random things from the expected die cast models to car themed curry. There is even a kids themed area. I would give it 1 more star if I had the option.
  • Spent nearly four hours here because if you truly are interested in what the museum has to offer, you won't rush. The first portion deals with nothing but textiles, and the second part deals entirely with the automotive side of Toyota. Lots of hands on exhibits, as well as live demonstrations, including a robot that plays the violin! There's a lot of information to process, some very technical, so it might not be the most interesting museum for a child. To an adult who loves cars and machines, it's heaven.
  • Best museum experience , so many interactive displays and great story telling exhibits. I learnt so much and spent close to 2 hours at the museum. They have English explanation for everything. Most of the machines inside work and a staff walk around and turns them on for you to see how everything works. A definitely must see attraction.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Nagoya

The central district, just south from the castle and its gardens, houses the bulk of accommodations in Nagoya. You'll find a good range of standard hotels, with onsite restaurants, simple rooms, and perhaps a pool in this area. Look slightly to the west, or closer to the castle,to find more luxurious accommodations. Across the surrounding residential areas, take a look close to the metro stations to find some of the most conveniently located, but budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses.
