Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and TechnologyAichi

Parts of the original redbrick buildings dating from the Taisho Era (around the 1910s) are preserved as an important industrial heritage and are integrated into the Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology. The museum was established in 1994 to convey to future generations the importance of manufacturing and the "spirit of creation and research." Within its spacious exhibition area of 14,133 square meters, the museum contains the Textile Machinery Pavilion, the Automobile Pavilion, Technoland and other facilities which contain many valued items and documents belonging to the founder Sakichi Toyoda. In the Textile Machinery and Automobile Pavilions, visitors can learn about the basic elements, and the history, of technologies through the configuration models on display and the actual processes as shown by an operator, while Technoland provides hands-on experiences of learning the basic principles and mechanisms of various machines. There are approximately 4,000 exhibits.
