Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology
Learn about the history of industry and the evolution of technology at the birthplace of Toyota Group.
The TOYOTA Commemorative Museum was built utilizing the location and buildings of the test factory that Sakichi Toyoda, the founder of the Toyota Group, established in 1911 for research and development of looms.
The museum is divided into two main sections. "The Textile Machinery Pavilion," which introduces the textile machinery, which is the origin of Toyota, and "The Automobile Pavilion," which presents the evolution of automobile technology.
"The Textile Machinery Pavilion" uses the pillars, beams, and red brick walls of the spinning and weaving factory built in the Taisho Era (1912-1926). Making visitors feel as if they have slipped back in time to the factories of the Taisho and early Showa Eras (1926〜 ). The exhibition hall displays about 100 units of early used tools, machines, and modern mechatronic textile machines. Staff members hold demonstrations from time to time, so you can see the machines spinning yarn and weaving cloth in a regular pattern in front of your eyes.
"The Automobile Pavilion" introduces Toyota's automobile manufacturing from various angles.
It consists of five zones: "The Early Years of the Automobile Business," "Vehicle Development With An Eye on the Future," "Development Technology," "Production Technology," and "Who is Kiichiro Toyoda?”. The course offers a profound insight into Toyota's history and philosophy.
In addition, there is a museum gift shop, restaurant, cafe, and library, so you can enjoy your visit all day with your family.
