Fodor's Review

Housed in the distinctive brick buildings of the company's original factory, this museum is dedicated to the rise of Nagoya's most famous company. Toyota's textile-industry origins are explored in the first of two immense halls, with an amazing selection of looms illustrating the evolution of spinning and weaving technologies over the last 200 years. The second, even larger hall focuses on the company's move into auto manufacturing, with exhibits including the Model AA,

Toyota's first mass-production automobile. In the Technoland room, kids can try out a wind tunnel, navigate a virtual reality maze, and use a massive lever to easily lift a 265-pound engine. The museum is a 20-minute walk north of JR Nagoya Station or 3 minutes from JR Sako Station.
