CollectionEdit

Unlike the Toyota USA Automobile Museum, however, the museum in Nagoya also features many cars from other manufacturers such as Alfa Romeo and DeLorean Motor Company, as well as artwork. The reserve collection includes some exceptional examples such as the 1922 Grand Prix Sunbeam.

The museum should not be confused with the Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology, also located in Nagoya.
