From the outside, this place looks like a really very dull corporate building and might even put some people off visiting, but make the effort and you'll be truly rewarded. The entrance/ticket hall shows Toyota's beginnings as a manufacturer of circular weaving machines, of all things! I've always wondered why Toyota make sewing machines, now I understand why! As you...

I was expecting the deluxe version of a Toyota showroom, littered with signs proclaiming the greatness that is all things Toyota. Wrong. Completely and totally wrong. This was the most beautiful collection of classic cars I have ever seen. They are in absolutely superb condition, glistening more brilliantly than on the day they were born. The signage is in excellent... More

We have a brief overnight stay in Nagoya meeting friends and having only an afternoon for any sightseeing, decided to go out to Nagakute which is about 40 minutes outside the city centre. The museum does showcase Toyota’s storied past but it also includes cars from all other significant car makers who are given equal billing. Entrance fee is a... More

Great museum for car lovers with beautifully maintained and rare cars. May be a bit boring for friends or partners who get dragged along, but there are plenty of places to sit throughout the exhibit and have a rest. Also clean toilets and a drinking fountain to refill your water bottle on the second floor. Included access to the library... More

I hadn't been to many automotive museums in the world, but I can strong recommend Toyota's museum because there are many rare cars that can tell car evolution story among the years, since European, American and Japanese cars. There are cars from the main manufacturers in the world. An unmissable tour for people who are interested in cars.

I can't even begin to imagine the value of the car collection. It basically presents a full history of the automobile with vehicles from around the world. If you are a car lover then don't miss this place and be sure to allocate at least a couple of hours for the visit.

It is an incredible collection of American and Japanese cars. There are also a few historical europear cars that will surprise you. You must go there if you are a car lover and you are by Nagoya. It is pretty amazing to see how they have rebuilt the oldest and most extrange cars. And every car present in the exhibition... More
