  • In adult women who visit 4/2017. Adults 500 yen admission fee is reasonable, I'm happy. Free (upon proof) are 65 years of age or older are environmentally friendly. Robot entered the front door, just to play the violin and had a crowd. Day 5 times on plays. I am Chinese folk song "Jasmine", and Elgar's "pomp and circumstance imposing" was played. Exhibition of giant steam engines, textile machine building, Automobile Museum, Technoland, restaurant, café, Museum shop on the ground floor. -Moving textile machinery building from wooden weaving machines up to ultra high-tech industries of the modern real. Staff chose to explain and demonstrate in front of each guide is easier to understand the evolution of industries and we look so. You can also touch and compare the different material each and fluffy cotton yarn. -To the Automobile Museum exhibited the typical car of the Toyota. Also set to reproduce the engine development during an episode, such as learning the history, is interesting. I enjoyed that was written by maxim of Toyota's room. 600 ton press machine is actually moving, processing cars seen. Manufacturing experience is to experience. -Technoland is feeling like the Center for educational games. The children are here the most interesting karting facilities also. Including weekends and public holidays seemed to be taking tickets, entering the system. -Everyone was eating the various menus and popular restaurants or cafes. Restaurant is authentic and chefs are being made properly. Instead of the lunch is ¥ 1,300 much make up cake, Parfait looks good,. -In the Museum Shop, the half-and-half with the souvenir from Nagoya and Toyota's original toy assortment. Cute and unique goods such as tools like spoons are worth buying and. There were a lot of car Toyota books and collaboration. 3-minute walk from Nagoya Railroad "Toei" station and then in the course of the sightseeing route bus so it is easy to access. Facilities for both adults and children, but said one adult fun! Old cars, "Dear! Ride it! "And then have fun. Hotel doesn't make much difference, but quite large room, so long-lived in anxiety and tough. Efficiently takes time for various performances, such as check in the Web site from it.

  • I strongly encourage attending one of the free guided 45 minute tours (check times before you attend). Entrance is ¥500 and the guided tours add a great deal to the experience. The museum is very interactive and the tour provides a great deal of background information on both sections of the museum that you don't get from the plaques which are written in Japanese as well as English. You can take a great deal away from simply exploring yourself, however, I found it even more rewarding returning to the areas the tour went through after the fact. The tour gives you great background into the history and explains things not written and grants access to much more info and experiences. We went anticipating to spend two hours and spent half the day there! A very enjoyable part of Nagoya.
  • This was my favorite museum in Japan so far. There are two huge rooms: one dedicated to the Toyota automatic looms and one to the manufacture of automobiles. I highly recommend the automobile floor if you're interested in modern heavy machinery, and I highly recommend the automated looms floor if you're interested in learning about old technologies and how they advanced through the years. This museum is perfect for inquisitive children; there are many demos of loud and complex machinery doing amazing things. I cannot recommend this museum enough!
  • This museum looks deceptively small from the outside, but there is an amazing amount packed into this museum dedicated to the industrial and technological achievements of the Toyota name. It seems every effort has been made to make your visit to the museum a memorable one, and it is wonderful - English tours are available, staff stationed at special sections of the museum to demonstrate the workings of devices and buttons for you to press as you walk along and see the huge contributions the Toyota company, especially father and son, Sakichi Toyoda and Kiichiro Toyoda respectively has done not only for Japan but for the world. This museum was a truly wonderful and educational way to spend an afternoon in Nagoya- I found the staff to be very nice in the museum- they would try their best to explain demonstrations in English, or approach us and help demonstrate particularly inventions that require explanation to fully understand its concept and purpose. There is a cafe and a souvenir shop after the museum ends, but also a few of Toyota's robots on display, one of which will demonstrate its ability to play the violin every so often (performance times are listed) just outside the souvenir shop. For children (and big children like me), there is a centre called 'technoland' where intelligence games can be enjoyed. This place is accessibly by buying the ticket into the museum.
  • Very large museum chronicling Toyotas evolution from textile industry to what it is today. They have various machinery on display and are more than happy to show them in action. Quite good amount of information in English as well.
  • Wonderful museum! I love the history of turning cotton into fabric and the old and new looms. I love that you can see how a car works, how a transmission works, and so many wonderful guides to speak with you. Technoland is wonderful for my 1 year old. She loves the play area.
