About Toyota Commemorative Museum Of Industry And Technology, Nagoya-shi
Toyota is Japan's largest car manufacturer. This is not the automobile museum. For the company, it's actually a history museum. Housed in the original brick building of the former Toyoda textile factory and research center, the museum explores the company's origins from a textile concern to a automobile concern. The complex has two main buildings: one dedicated to textiles and the other to automobiles, and both are equally fascinating. Dynamic exhibitions demonstrate how industrial looms work, and also provide insight into early spinning techniques. You will also find a metalwork exhibit; the Tecnoland area is an interactive exhibit that allows you to play with the tools of production of Textiles and Automobiles; and a 1989 steam engine exhibit in recognition of the Industrial Revolution.

Toyota Commemorative Museum Of Industry And Technology, Nagoya-shi Reviews
YOU HAVE TO COME HERE. This is by far the best museum I’ve ever been to that was outside of my normal interest. Even if you don’t like cars come here and know thy Enemy. All the old stuff is well looked after and better damn operational. The showcase of cars though the ages is exemplary. Don’t get the curry.
Actually this is my favorite museum in Aichi so I'm pretty biased. It combines the local history of textiles and automobiles, both of which I'm passionate about. But this really is a great place to go to, both to take visiting relatives and friends and also just to go and enjoy learning! Many of the exhibits are interactive and if you're lucky with your timing you might get to take a few free souvenirs home from the presentation staff! Entry is just 500¥ (less than $5 USD) and many of the staff speak English. Give it a try!
Such a cool place! I recommend to come around 3pm so you can spend the full 2 hours here. If you come in the morning it might be very crowded and you'll spend more time waiting for some activities which will cause delay of your next plan. Everything they display here is fully preserved from the past. We are very satisfied, highly recommended!
If you don't know how a car works, this is the place to visit to learn more! Awesomely informative exhibits that are interactive and modern. If you don't know how fabrics and textiles are created, this is also the place to visit as (believe it or not) Toyota started out inventing textile looms! Something for everyone in the family!
Probably most people didn't know Toyota started off in the textile industry and probably didn't know something else or there will not be any Toyota cars today. Excellent museum and the have live demo of the textile machines which were built in the 50s and are still kicking strong! Automotive shows lots of nostalgia 80s 90s car, their car mechanism and improvements over the years. Spent a good 3/4 of my day there. There are lots of English descriptions so guide is optional. However do look out English guide for the textile machines as they are on limited time slots. Textile department is really awesome. And.... Lockers are free with a refundable 100 yen deposit.
