  • This is one of the best science museums in the world. Most science museums are geared toward children but this one is truly educational for children and adults alike. The museum is broken into two parts - part once concentrating on Toyota's textile beginnings and part two on Toyota's automobile business. Both are filled with amazing live demonstrations, workable tools and detailed information. There is a recommended route through the museum that takes in total 1.5hrs. I would allocate at least that much time. Almost everything is in both English and Japanese. Please don't skip the demonstration on forging - it's amazing.
  • Very education and fun to visit. One will learn the history of where and how TOYOTA become a gigantic car manufacturer. Even more surprise to know that they were garments machine manufacturers and specialized at it. There are 2 parts of the tour. One for garment and the other for car manufacturing. Especially garments. You will learn all the history and they even show you how the cottons changed into garment. Fascinating. I even forgot that I was looking for a car museum.
