We visited this museum as part of a tour. As much as I'm not really in to history or museums, I have to say that it was all laid out in a pretty easy cool and easy to follow way. They have a nice little...More

What a wonderful museum! It was renovated in March 2018 and opened in April. The museum gives an oversight of the history of Tokyo (formally known as Edo) from the Shogun-period until the present day. The museum has tons of miniatures, life size mock-ups and...More

Informative museum of the history of Edo/Tokyo. There are signs in English throughout the exhibition, but some of the detailed descriptions are written only in Japanese. There are free audio guides with a slow voice that reads the same text as is presented in the...More

Start at F6, go up with the red escalator, ask for a personal tour guide (no extra charge), worth every minute. The museum is built so that you go through the years of Tokyo (ex Edo) from its inception until today. Understands and appreciates the...More

Worth a see. Models are very impressive. Well lauded out and covers history very well. Most signs have English titles but not the details, that go frustrating. All audio was Japanese only. Takes about two hours to get through.

This museum failed to really grab my attention despite having a lot of potential. They have some beautiful models and life size replicas including houses and a bridge which I really liked. And I did feel that I learnt a lot about the history of...More

Museum is great to understand Edo period. You can experience Edo period life style and exercise with showed items. Addirionally, volunteer translators can explain all the meanings of illustrations. Must seen before leaving Tokyo

I already visited the museum. The lockers are small, not suitable for a carry on. But they can store bigger luggage at the ticketing counter by the coin lockers they have a special room for that. 😉
