The Toyota Automobile Museum features the developmental history of gasoline-powered automobiles and follows the successive stages of Japanese motorization, as well as transitions in Japanese lifestyle. Gasoline automobiles were first introduced at the end of the 19th century, and the Museum presents and introduces their 100-year development through an exhibition of approximately 120 cars from Japan, America and Europe mainly showing actual cars in a systematic way.
As an extra attraction, the Museum’s new building exhibits the transitions of Japanese “car culture” and “commodity culture” along with approximately 20 automobiles and 2,000 commodities and information connected with each period. The Museum also holds special exhibitions and events throughout the year.
