Definitely get an audio aide or better yet a volunteer guide. Excellent activities in the museum to try activities of old Edo. Adults and children will enjoy this museum

The history of Tokyo is encapsulated in two floors of its permanent exhibit. The dioramas and scale reconstructions of past historical structures (destroyed by either war or earthquake) are very impressive. The museum is right beside the Ryogoku Station making it very accessible by train....More

I visited the museum back in April 2017. It's a modern gallery with an exciting and interactive showcase of Japan's ancient artefacts way back from the Edo's period.

Spacious and well set out with a variety of objects - art, ceramics, textiles (disappointingly for me) little in the way of armour, sculpture and sundry items. Worth a short visit.

We tried to visit the museum earlier in the week only to find the museum is currently closed until end of March 2018. There were many other tourists also discovering this and being disappointed.

Excellent modern museum that features lots of interactive elements as it leads you through the history of the fascinating Edo period. There are free volunteer English guides who are certainly not looking for tips but simply give up their free time to share their interest...More

This is a small-ish museum that gives you details about the life in the Edo period of Tokyo. There are many interesting replicas, documents, re-creations of old houses etc. But please do have the right level of expectation when you visit this place - this...More

I do not know about another museum. This is certainly a very special exhibition and I do not believe there is a "duplicate". The museum is quite new, so it is really unbelievable that they are closing completely for... More
