My family and I visited the museum for its grand reopening. The refurbishment was nice but the content of the museum could be better. There are loads of historical information contained in the recreation and depictions of Edo-Tokyo however, the amount of exhibits are basic and not anything that really excites the senses. However, the museum is still a wonderful place to learn all about Edo-Tokyo.

One of the largest museums in Tokyo that houses numerous artefacts of historical significance.
Located in Ryogoku and accessible by JR sobu local line or using Tokyo Metro oefo line.
Museum has many sections and descriptions are provided in English.
The ground floor has a museum shop with many souvenir options.

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

This museum runs the history of the Tokyo area, from the ruling class on down. There are a number of exhibits which cover various aspects of life throughout Tokyo's history. The audio guide will add extra information on top of what's on the plaques. The audio equipment requires a deposit which is returned to you when you return the equipment.
This is a very well done museum with enough to keep you occupied for a couple of hours. Well worth a visit to learn more about the city and its history.

The museum is about the history of Tokyo - the development of the city and how it used to look like during the different periods of time. There is very little explanation in English so get a guide if you want to make the most of it. There are volunteers guides that are very nice and willing to tell you the story of Tokyo. The down side is that you will spend at least half a day doing the tour. Enjoy :)
