Toyota USA operates this museum as a corporate resource located in a large warehouse-like building on the expansive Toyota complex in Torrance CA. It is not open to the public but can be arranged by appointment, as well the museum has a few open house days each year like Toyotafest in May. It's a unique collection of Toyota cars exported...

I had the opportunity to work at the Toyota Museum for a one day interview & I was blown away. This is a must see for anyone & everyone. The history of Toyota is displayed with classic cars, dating back to the first ones off the line & to present day. With a great display of their rich racing history... More

Say aloud "Toyota"...what comes to your mind? I will probably say "Corolla" or "Celica" or maybe "Tundra", not a luxury car like Rolls Royce or a high performance car like Ferrari. Keep this in mind when visiting the museum. I made my appointment via email, the answer was very fast. It is easy to reach and there is ample parking.... More

Toyota USA offers an intriguing look into the history of Toyota. From military vehicles, family sedans to race cars. The museum offers fine examples of most everything they have made. Best of all, it's all free. Run by a very friendly and informative lady. Just call and let them know the date and time you would like to visit.

If you are a car enthusiast or a history buff, the Toyota Museum is a great place filled with cars from the beginning of Toyota's creation to today. There are also special car models that were used in movies as well as races. It's a really cool place to visit. Please call ahead to make an appointment since they can... More

I have not been here, but it looks like a very interesting museum. The main reason for my review is to point out that Toyota is spelled "Toytoa" on this site.

Have visited this site, check too make sure it is open. Recently expanded, gives a nice look at Toyota cars and history. Really well done, superbly clean and displays are very informative. Does not take a lot of time to see, but well worth it.

My visit to the Toyota Museum was an unplanned last minute decision. I had about 12 hours of free time in Torrance, CA before my flight at LAX. I actually looked up interesting places in Torrance to visit and the museum came up as one such place. I showed up at the museum door without an appointment. However, Susan, the... More

This is a hidden gem of a museum. Although it is open to the public its difficult to locate...Off of Van Ness near Toyota Way. There is not much signage but its located in the Pro Logis Building area. There are amazing vehicles in the collection all the way back to the first ones ever made off the line. Its... More
