Samurai Museum Shinjuku
Unlike the city museums, you have plenty of time and space to examine this amazing Samurai exhibit and take photos in a nice, quiet setting which I really appreciated.
Brilliant!! Unlike most museums a member of staff will guide you through each item in the museum and explains the history behind it.

Many of Japan's Historic buildings, especially around Tokyo have been moved into museums so it was great to experience just really old Japan.
Similar to Meiji Mura in Nagoya, The Edo-Tokyo Open-Air Architectural Museum has collected and preserved various buildings from around Tokyo, ranging from rustic farm houses to charming Western-influenced mansions.
This is one of the best theme museums I've ever been.
It really was a fantastic end to our holiday, we loved every single minute of our visit to this wonderful, magical museum!

A fantastic if small museum with a great selection of wood block prints featuring portraits, landscapes, battle scenes and depending upon the displays some wonderful animal caricatures.
Wow! A wonderful, small museum where you can learn about the wood-block print process and see amazing works of ukiyo-e!
This small gem of a museum has one of the finest collections and displays anywhere of pristine Art Deco design.
If you liked the "Golden Cabbage" of the Secession Museum in Vienna, you will be delighted with the former home of Prince Asaka, now the Teien Art Museum.
Located in Turbo park with other art museums, the science/natural history museum, and the zoo, around a huge mall with fountains and cherry trees.
Walked here via Uneo park - had a lovely walk all be it very touristy but the museum was a good experience and very worthwhile - unlike many museums in Japan this one is in English as well which it makes it a lot...
It's nicely laid out and flows very nicely so whereas some museums explicitly label the different areas- here you follow the route round and enjoy the journey from biblical portraits through to modern art.
... TOKYO Based on a bequest by the Matsukata Collection, the National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo, (NMWA), was set up in 1959 at the famed Ueno Park – the largest park in Japan and home to several great museums.
A few museums are as well set up as this one, which was incredible.
This museum is an architecture jewel! must see Whoever is intetrested in Japanese comptemporary and traditional art and culture must spare the time and visit the museum
One of my favorites museums in Tokyo!
This is a smallish (by Japanese standards) museum, though in a beautiful location next to a tree-lined river and in an architecture lovers grotto.

A great museum for a rainy day
This museum covers everything however, and we were fascinated to see the gaps around the two popularly covered eras filled in.
I love to visit Contemporary Art Museums, Mori is one of my favorites by far.
The admission ticket is a bit pricey compared to other museums but if you consider that is a museum plus an observatory is slightly more acceptable.

This place has many fossils compared to most of the Natural history museums in US and its free for kids!
We were privileged enough to see the Great Spanish masters exhibition from the Prado but it regularly hosts fabulous works from the world's great galleries and museums.
I went to see the exhibition on the Masterpieces of Nabis from the Museum D'Orsay, which was very well done and interesting.

This was an amazing place to go too for all things cars and much more, had a fantastic time in the Toyota area and museum.....lots of other shops to check out.
This is on the southeastern edge of the large park which contains lots of other, larger museums.
Even our 11 year old daughter, who declared all museums to be boring, was interested.
Located on the northwestern corner of the Imperial Palace area, this is a great museum for Japanese art, and although it focuses on modern art, it shows art of the past 2-3 centuries.
The Modern museum has an excellent audio guide which helped us make our way through the 3 floors of exhibits in the stunning building, which was designed by architect Taniguchi Yoshiro and built in 1969.
EXCELLENT WAX MUSEUM
Whatever the country you are in, Madam Tussauds museum is always a fancy place to go if it is around.

Subway Museum Edogawa
This place is a must visit place for train lovers, along with aforementioned railway museums.
I visited the Tokyo Metro Museum on a hot day in August with my 3 kids, aged 12, 10 and 7. My older two are big fans of trains, and the 12 year old is 'train obsessed' so coming here was his idea of HEAVEN!
Fire Museum Yotsuya

My wife and I visited the Art Museum to see local artists work and found a Group Show of Contemporary Artists.
World-class contemporary art museum
Favorite museum in Tokyo
This fascinating museum is located near Tokyo Station and is an annex to the Bank of Japan.
A free museum.
. It has become standard practice for quality museums in Japan to offer bilingual curator notes.
Although this is a small art museum, we thought it was worth it just for van Gogh's Sunflowers.
