Are you interested in new car? What about old classic car? If you’re interested in vintage autos and racecars, this automotive museum “Historical Garage” is worth checking out! The place is in Odaiba Venus fort 2F and 1F. The exhibit areas are fashioned to resemble the streets of an Italian village in the 1960s, a small town in 1950s America and similar evocative settings. The cast of automobiles on display changes regularly, rewarding repeat visits. And although it’s run by Toyota, there are plenty of beautifully restored classic cars from other makers on display.
The whole upper floor of the museum is a shop, selling a huge stock of miniature cars as well as magazines, books, DVDs and various car-themed collectibles. Next to Grease is the Italian-themed Alessandro Nannini Cafe, serving light meals, coffee, beer and cocktails. The lower level is devoted to racecars from past decades, and at one end is a glass-enclosed Restoration Pit where you can watch the museum’s staff of mechanics as they meticulously restore and maintain cars for the collection.
There are some places you can take pictures with classic cars (even you can get into)! Though it’s officially part of Toyota Mega Web, the History Garage is located at the opposite end of the Venus Fort shopping mall, about five minutes away from the giant showroom and test drive areas. Anyway the place is in attractive Odaiba. If you are at Odaiba, you will feel one day is really short. Enjoy more for your one day sightseeing! Interesting? Please check it out!
