This museum is a great display of machinery, cars and engineering. If you like any of these things it is a must for you. Close to Nagoya Station and easy to find (about 20min walk). Great layout that is always changing. Not just for Toyota fans. Live displays of aluminium casting, drop forging, machining, and various fabric automatic looms. Also... More

This is a great place to learn about Toyota's history in a really cool and visual way! From a loom maker to one of the largest auto manufacturers in the world, this museum is packed full of cool things to do. I also rode the little cars around the track in the Children's Area and tried some of the special... More

Initially I wanted to go to Noritake no Mori but it was closed then I found this museum by chance. It was great to know how Toyota started and founded. I didn't know. Great place to spend half day

Toyota started as a textile weaving company, and they have preserved this heritage with the world's best collection of spinning and weaving machines, most in operating condition. No other weaving/textile museum is anywhere near as complete and interesting as this one. The automotive manufacturing section is also outstanding. The museum Guide Book is probably the best written, most informative museum... More

The textile area have Toyota the ability to make cats and is rather interesting even for people with minimal interest in... More

The Toyota Commemorative Museum has a wide exhibition of machines, notably cotton processing ones, from the origins of Toyoda corporation. Also the history of the shift to car manufacturing is well explained.

A group of US car buffs visited with the notion that this would be a museum of Toyota Motors. Instead, it turned out to be a museum of the Toyota business empire - how it began and grew into what it is today. Nonetheless, we all enjoyed it and found it worth the time and money spent.
