Must see

This is a motorheads dream. Everything from racecars to production cars and show cars. Granted they are all Toyota but well worth the time and effort to see them.

Museum in Torrance we stumbled upon was owned by Toyota and fun to visit. Staff were kind and allowed us to meandre unsupervised. Thank you.

Once I went to the Toyota Museum in Torrance and they actually have old and new Toyotas in the museum. I was really surprised that it was coordinated so well. I really loved comparing the Toyotas of the past with those of the present time. It is a great attraction for the whole family and I would highly recommend seeing... More

I found this museum by combing through all the things to do in the LA area. The first new car I ever owned was a 1980 Toyota and have owned several since. The museum tour is free! I contacted Susan via e-mail about reserving a tour and she got back to me right away. Great lady who has done a... More

Went here for a Scottish dinner one night in the large banquet area, and took time to stroll through the museum. Although small by most museum standards, well worth it. Toyota has done a fabulous job of displaying a wide variety of historical cars. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Made an appointment to go visit and after watching 2 short videos I went in to the museum which has a rich collection of all kinds of Toyota vehicles. From early day to present mixed in with racing cars. Staff was very friendly!

You don't have to be into Toyotas, which I am very NOT, to find this car museum entertaining. Cars are in great shape, there are more than just Toyotas, and the staff are fun.

It was a very nostalgic trip back in time, and as a car buff, it inspired me and their cars were pristine. Many great memories were restored by visiting there. We also had a real estate seminar there and I took every chance I got to take a break and visit the cars. The area for the seminar was wide... More

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
