I'm not a great one for museums, but it seemed having travelled 9000kms that a visit to this well reviewed museum was worth taking the trouble to make the journey from Shinjuku. I was more than pleasantly surprised. There are a lot of interactive displays and the quaility of the model displays brings history to life. Don't get this mixed... More

I'm a Sucker for museums. This is a nice place to visit as it has a lot of interactive displays and shows how people of Japan lived during the Edo period. There is also a cultural show which they have on the main hall. And free tour guide in different languages are available in certain times. I would imagine this... More

We immediately asked for a free tour guide. Our guide, T, was fantastic. He gave us lots of information on the history of Edo and Tokyo. I loved all the hands of activities and performances. We even learned to do paper cutting.

Loved all the life-size replicas of old structure from Edo period, as well as all the incredibly detailed diorama. The life size sets are great as you are immersed in the setting and learn the layout of their old houses (they even include the drains). The Edo-Tokyo museum also has a lot of interactive exhibits to show you how people... More

An interesting museum full of great displays and interactive exhibits. The free show is worth catching - a woman balancing various items on her chin! Very enjoyable - especially for little ones. There is a free tour available in English, but only take this if you really want lots of detail and to be walked around the museum. Overall, a... More

We visited this gallery with our two children aged 8 and 10 and were fortunate to join the free English tour with a very well informed and entertaining tour guide who bought the exhibition to life. Great entrance price and enough interactive and visually interesting displays to keep adults and kids entertained for the three hours we spent in the... More

Cavernous space filled with meticulous dioramas, reproductions of historic buildings, interactive displays, and beautifully preserved artifacts. A wonderful volunteer tour guide took us through the exhibit, including a behind the scenes look at the kabuki theater. I highly recommend avisit for anyone interested in Japanese history!
