What is Toyota Automobile Museum

The Toyota Automobile Museum was built in 1989 as part of the 50th anniversary of the Toyota Motor Cooperation. Celebrating over 100 years of history of the gasoline fueled automobile, the permanent exhibition includes not only Toyota cars but historical cars from around the world from the 19th and 20th Centuries from various car manufacturers. The museum is separated into the "main building" and the "new building". In the main building houses exhibits illustrating the birth of the automobile, development of automotive technology, and the cultural history of automobiles. The new building features Japan’s motorization history exhibits as well as household goods displays. Cars on exhibition are maintained in working order and during special events, are actually used and run on site. The property has its own maintenance shop and the cars on exhibition are serviced at that shop. There are also regularly held "Backyard tours" where the storage facilities for cars not on exhibition as well as the maintenance shop can be visited. In addition to the permanent exhibition, there are special car themed exhibitions held several times a year. There are also special events such as a parade featuring cars recruited from all over Japan and held on a public road, as well as a Classic Car Festival, both which foster relationships with the region. There is a restaurant on site and the "Toyota Museum Curry" is a popular gift item as well.
