Good time to spend a few hrs. I did like the Luther location better however the new location is ok as well. They have all kinds of Toyotas from Indy cars to the first Toyota.

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.

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.
