This place is huge. It is very interesting and eye opening to see how car mechanisms work. There is a section with looming and weaving displays (Toyota started as a weaving factory) and another on car mechanisms. Fascinating place. Some of people who man the displays speak English. It is well worth the price of admission

This museum was an educational and fascinating history of Toyota. The founder actually started the business as a textile manufacturer; his son branched the business into making automobiles. This museum is a must-see for car buffs, and those interested in business/commerce and history. There is also an interactive area for young people; we ran out of time and didn't have... More

WOW! Who would know that Toyota started as a mills company? This place is huge and basically divided into 2 major exhibitions, the mills and autos. Both equally interesting and interactive and a few english speaking "guides" on the floor. My 5y old and hubby love this place so much!

I'm very impressed by the level of interactivity of this museum. Highly worth it, Toyota doesn't hold back on the energy usage vs single serve impressive buttons. Be sure to ration your time, between the cloth section and the car section, might find yourself running out of time if you dally at part one for too long. Car section was... More

This museum is located not in the center, but the way there isn't complicated. If you have some time to spend in Nagoya, I would recommend it for visit. The history of company is told and illustrated with different objects, mostly machinery. A lot is explained about processing.

Have to admit that we are very interested in industrial history but even so this is a really great museum. We learnt a lot and had not appreciated how Toyota was originally a textile firm. Everything is available in English. Staff are really helpful. Its only 500 Yen. Several demonstrations of different machines - check out the timetable for these... More

After a few weeks in Japan I had had enough of art/history/gardens so on reading the reviews on Trip Advisor I decided to get the subway to Sako station and go the Toyota museum. I spent 2 hours here but if you are into machines, mechanics, cars, manufacturing etc you could spend much longer. Plenty of demonstrations of the machines... More

Went here on a Sunday afternoon and was very impressed with what was available to see. I am by nature a museum geek and this one was high up on the list for most interesting. In short, the museum is broke up into 4 main parts: 1) Loomworks 2) Automotive 3) Metal works 4) Technology I spent a small time... More

Thought we'd spend a couple of hours here but ended up with nearly a 4 hour stay. It's a very well organised museum which tells the history of Toyota from textiles to cars and beyond. What I found fascinating was the early history of the cotton and wool industry in the UK and reconstructed early machines such as the flying... More

This museum is awesome in several ways: 1. The content is all about how TMC and TICO started from the Toyoda family 2. Almost all exhibits are interactive not static 3. The museum personnel are friendly and helpful I hope I can come here again!
