We have been to Tokyo 3 times but this is the first time we heard about this museum and we are glad that we found it. From the outside, you'd never guess what is housed inside. In the cavernous space they recreated full size buildings...More

This is a great place to come to learn about old Tokyo. Most informative and interesting. It also has good air conditioning so if it's hot it's the perfect retreat. We paid 600yen to enter and then got the audio guide. You pay a 1000yen...More

This is an incredible and unique museum! We spent hours there and easily could have spent more time too. There is an interesting focus of this museum that, quite honestly, I've never seen in an American museum - how ordinary people lived in different eras....More

If history is what your looking for, look no further. This is the place where the history of Tokyo comes to life. From huge miniature models of early Edo period portraying life in Japan to full size replicas of the front of a Kabuki theater....More

Interesting museum, but a few hours were enough. Enjoyed seeing the miniatures, and took quite a few photos.

Не первое место в списке достопримечательностей, но визита все-таки стоит. Очень приятная и прохладная (!) атмосфера в зачастую жаркую японскую погоду. Мы сперва даже несколько растерялись с различными выставками и этажами, но, разумеется, бдительные сотрудники направили нас, куда нужно. Все устроено довольно компактно, но в...More

Large display. Lots of models of old buildings We spent 3 hours. Just the permanent show which is two top floor. The special show costs more and I did not understand what is it. Any way, 3 hours is enough.....

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

I don't think so as the ticket does not have any information of owner. If you want to visit again, please ask the ticketing desk for this situation if they will accept. As Japanese people are so kind to foreigners, it is... More

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.
