“Great Classic Car Museum”

Toyota Automobile Museum
Ranked #1 of 16 things to do in Nagakute
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed June 16, 2013

The Toyota Automobile Museum is a great addition to a day trip to the Toyota Kaikan. If you are travelling from central Nagoya, you will pass it on the Linimo maglev line on the way there or on the return journey. It is certainly possible to do the 2 museums in one day, and excellent directions are available from the Toyota Kaikan front desk.
Unfortunately when we visited there was one floor off limits as they were changing exhibitions, but the entrance fee was reduced accordingly, making it very affordable for a small family. In addition to the extensive car collection (both Japanese and overseas models ) there was a section dedicated to the history of the car industry in Japan, and how the technology has changed as Japanese society has changed.

This is a great museum for car lovers to understand the history and future of Toyota. They have a great collection of Japanese and international cars in their 2 exhibit halls. They offer multi-language head sets. There is one restaurant and a cafe here as well for those who would like to eat/drink.

It is most convenient to ride the Linimo train to get here. We took a taxi from Nagoya station going to the museum, and it took longer and was more costly as there was a bit of traffic. We took the Linimo on our return trip, from Toyota to Nagoya station (1 transfer) which was pleasant and timely.

brilliant place for car lovers, i was expecting only Toyota cars but they also have other and specially they have some old models which is very good to see. around 30-35 mins ride from Nagoya city centre. i stayed at Hilton Nagoya - staff really helped me to reach - took subway till fujigaoka and then Linimo train which was also a great experience.

I was a bit disappointed by this museum. I thought I could learn more about Toyota's car manufacturing history by visiting here, but this place was more like "classic car collection". There are many classic cars, but not much explanations.

Unless you like classic cars, I am not sure if it worth paying 1,000yen for the entrance (plus transportation fee to get to the venue.)
