Cars and Culture, the Toyota Automobile Museum

On the outskirts of Nagoya City in Nagakute is the magnificent Toyota Automobile Museum, dedicated to the history of motoring and the influence of cars in our culture.

Toyota Automobile Museum

Over 120 cars from all eras of the motoring age are on stunning display. Not just Toyota, but American and European automobiles. Many different and famous brands are represented too, Mercedes Benz, Ford, Mazda, Porsche, Subaru, Rolls Royce, De Soto, Volkswagen, even little Isuzu to name just a few.

American and European cars are displayed on the second floor, while a wide range of domestic vehicles fill the third floor. The building is oval shaped, like a race circuit, with visitors walking the course, surrounded by many exciting and beautiful vehicles.

Even non-motor enthusiasts are impressed by the scale, range and beauty of the cars. Highlights include a classic fire engine red 1955 Ford Thunderbird with white walled tires. President Roosevelt’s 12 cylinder Packard Twelve, the first car to be armor plated and contain bulletproof glass. There’s a rare bright red and gold trim 1910 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost, over 100 years old, but looking like it’s just rolled off the assembly line. See an early Toyoda Model AA from 1939, an open top 1965 E-Type Jaguar, even a pink Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz with the Batmobile-like wings and tons of blinding chrome. All the cars are in spotless condition, 98% are original.

Nostalgic Time Trip

Toyota Automobile Museum

A separate fascinating display section takes you on a nostalgic time trip. Home interior sets show how households and furnishings, TVs, washing machines, etcetera, changed along with car designs and features through the decades.

If you tire of looking at the cars, (and that will take some time) or if you need re-hydrating after drooling over the vehicles, take a break in the Cafeteria or the relaxing Museum Restaurant with views overlooking the old Nagakute Battlefield. Let the kids play in the Kids Garage, or the Museum Shop with over 500 miniature cars and original souvenirs too.

The Toyota Automobile Museum is not just for car fans. Men and women, young old, it doesn’t matter, the range and selection in this most expansive museum has something for everybody.
