Holiday Travel Guide
Toyota Automobile Museum

See more than a century’s worth of classic cars and learn about Japan’s automobile history in this captivating museum.

The Toyota Automobile Museum in Nagakute City is heaven on earth for automobile enthusiasts. Here visitors can admire luxury cars and learn about the role that automobiles have played both in Japan’s history and in its popular culture. This fascinating museum is a must-visit for car experts and laypersons alike.

Although the museum is owned by Toyota, the car collection includes models from many other manufacturers. Walk through the main hall, which is filled with 140 classic cars dating back to the 19th century. Each of the vehicles is of the highest showroom quality and the collection is an impressive sight.

View a replica of Toyota’s first-ever passenger car, the Toyota AA, which was built in 1987 to commemorate the company’s 50th anniversary. Admire a sleek Toyota 2000GT, which is one of only 351 ever 2000GTs ever built. Featured in the James Bond film You Only Live Twice, this sleek car showed that Japanese automakers could rival their European counterparts. Across the showroom is a Mercedes-Benz 500K. This mid-1930s luxury touring car was one of the German manufacturer’s first successes.

After exploring the showroom, visit the Annex to see the permanent exhibition on the history of Japanese automobiles. Learn about the importance of cars in Japanese culture as well as Toyota’s production techniques. Look at the collection of rare photographs, historic artefacts and video footage. The Annex also houses temporary exhibitions. When you are finished browsing, stop by the museum’s restaurant or café for a bite to eat.

The museum is closed on Mondays and from December 29 to January 1. To get there, take the metro to the Geidaidori Station, which is situated right outside the museum doors. For drivers, there are 400 parking spots available on-site. There is an entrance fee, but there are discounts available for children.
