Toyota Commemorative Museum Of Industry And Technology - Review
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
A great place to see old machinery, particularly weaving, and see how the Toyota empire started. Great for history lovers. There are a few videos showing how some machines work, and you can also ask for live demo of some weaving machines It can be loud but I think it's a good way to realise how loud some manufactures are/were. Near the exit there's a robot playing violin at scheduled times. See picture attached.
Monster looms for making textiles. Huge working presses to make car parts. This is all working stuff and is interactive. Could spend all day exploring this museum. Really great place for young and old to celebrate how stuff is made. Definately worth the trip.
Good place to learn how fabrics are made from cotton flower. Many hands on experiences available as well as very knowledgeable staffs guiding thru exhibitions. Most of the machines are in working order and you can watch this in action. Over to automotive section, they technically moved parts of the factory line to show how they are made. For school kids they can get small model car made in front of them straight from extrusion machine. You should allow at least 2 hours .
Well worth the price and visit. The museum itself is pretty big and would take a couple of hours to go through. Starting from the textiles all the way to the cars, you'll be able to see the full on history of Toyota. If you're into cars this place would be an easy choice. Overall it was a wonderful and informative museum, with great exhibits! If you're in the area this would be a good place to go to.
Super cool museum here in the city. Many locals come here with their children. You can learn a lot about the brand Toyota and it's founder. Over all a cool place, and not very crowded. It has machines all the way back from the 30s. Worth the time here!
