#1 Atmosphere After Closing

Night at the Toyota Automobile Museum #1

Only footsteps are echoing in the museum after closing.

In this dark place, you’ll be engrossed by the appearances of vehicles, which are different from those in the daytime.

The four cars in the Toyota Automobile Museum’s collection will be explained by our deputy director.

    • Rolls-Royce  Silver Ghost (1910, U.K.)
    • Hispano-Suiza K6 (1935, France)
    • Minerva 30CV Type AC (1925, Belgium)
    • Duesenberg Model J (1929, U.S.A.)
#2 Shadows, Colors, and Silhouettes

Night at the Toyota Automobile Museum #2

These three vehicles have beautiful shadows, colors, and silhouettes, especially when they are lighted in the darkness.

    • Delage Type D8-120 (1939, France)
    • Mercedes-Benz 300SL Coupe (1955, Germany)
    • Toyota 2000GT Model MF10 (1967, Japan)

Please take a look at their elegant figures in the museum after closing, which are different from usual.

#3 Headlights

The final chapter of the Night at the Toyota Automobile Museum series features headlights.
