One of the main attraction of Nagoya has just opened its door last year. Inline with the Japanese that is ever crazy with mechanical robot, Robot Museum was officially opened at October 2006. Robot Museum is a 2,600-square-meter museum that also feature a shop and a cafe set in a "near future" environment where humans and robots coexist peacefully.

The Robot Musuem is aimed at "the experience and fun of living with robots." That was a recurring theme at the insanely popular 2005 Aichi Expo, which was held outside Nagoya and drew 22 million. The city was chosen as a location for the museum because of the robot fervor generated by the expo as well as its history of prowess in manufacturing and craftsmanship.
