I was very impressed by the amount of material covered in this collection and the attention to detail put into the displays. Upon entering the museum, you cross a life-size replica of the Nihonbashi, overlooking a life-size replica of the facade of the Nakamuraza kabuki...More

Interesting museum capturing the history of Tokyo. Although there are audioguides, I would recommend joining one of the other language tours if you don't speak Japanese. As expected, the depiction of WWII was minimalists and very one sided.

Truly a must to learn the history and culture of Japan. We have been there three times, learn something new each visit. Great for young and old, very informative, wonderful facility. We spend most of the day, then walk by the sumo museum next door.

A great way to spend a few hours. You could probably spend even longer but we were getting tired by the time we made it to this museum late afternoon. It was fun wandering around and admiring the replica buildings and there was enough information...More

We'll be seeing the museum one morning, then going to an appointment. Can we return to the museum later that day on the same ticket?

Would also recommend a minimum of 3 -4 hours and use the free volunteer guide service. But you could - as I did - easily spend a whole day there.
Hi is this museum worth a visit? I have time for only one museum. Which museum do you suggest it to be? Many thanks in advance!
