Land Cruiser Heritage Museum: Video

A day at the Land Cruiser Heritage Museum in Salt Lake City, Utah.

YOU would think that if there was going to be a museum dedicated to the Toyota Land Cruiser it would be in the vehicle’s home country, Japan.

If not Japan then Australia would be the next logical choice, as there is no place on earth that loves a Cruiser more than we do.

So you’ll be surprised to find what is possibly the best collection of Land Cruisers is actually in the United States. Salt Lake City, Utah, to be precise, and here you’ll find an amazing collection of Cruisers at the Land Cruiser Heritage Museum.

Land Cruiser 1The museum is a private collection, and when we visited there were 72 Cruisers from all eras of the model on display. All bar one are owned by long-time Toyota dealership owner Greg Miller – the other Cruiser is his brother’s.

There are some rare beasts in the collection including FJ25s, a low mileage FJ55, a unique PX10 and a couple of Mega Cruisers. There are even a few in there that have come from – or at least visited – Australia, while an early Toyota BJ 4x4 that predates the Land Cruiser has recently been sourced from Australia and is about to be shipped to the museum.

Toyota LandCruiser 2The museum is open to the public and is usually staffed by a Land Cruiser enthusiast who will be only too willing to answer questions. We were lucky enough to have Cruiser Dan there when we dropped in and, as a 35-year Toyota parts man, there isn’t much he doesn’t know about Cruisers.
