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.

  • 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.

  • Pretty interesting museum with a surprisingly large collection of items on display. The pricing for a single adult was fair for the amount of items and information presented. While a lot exhibits are interesting some of them can be a little too much and get pretty dry. For example the textile portion of the museum feels like it goes on forever. Cool place to checkout on a rainy day but can be a little too informative.

  • This is such a historic place! You get to learn where the Toyoda family started and how their business evolved into what it is today. Would definitely recommend this to tourists (even those that are not car fanatics).

  • Great place to visit if you're interested in technology and the history of Toyota. Easy to reach by sightseeing bus line, entrance fee is very affordable, there are live exhibitions. 2 hours can be spend easily.
