Fabulous way to see historically or culturally significant buildings. Wear easy on/off shoes as you must take them off when inside the houses.

May 2019 my visit to the museum!!An amazing museum of Edo period (From ~1500 until ~1800 year) Incredible and infinite exhibits... They presented life in different aspects of daily life in Japan, There were also many models with the structure of an Edo period area!! Also incredible were the buildings and the figures of people in real dimensions that presented the routine of the time!! I also loved the interactivity they provided.... I remember there were 3 small rooms with how the lamps evolved, it was a real revolution every time... Great experience! I should emphasize that the museum was an architectural epic, spotlessly clean and there were several ways to tour!!Thank you Japan... Unforgettable experience from the look of the building, the perfect organization and tour even the souvenirs I bought were wonderful....!!

The entry ticket is 600yen till today. The Museum is has two portions, one is Edo period and the another portion is how the Tokyo is formed after Edo to current period. The artwork was simply mind blowing, even the small details were perfect, all are miniature product of old Japan within their residential areas, cars, clothes and how westernisation has established in Japan and many more. It is totally worth the visit, people who love history and who don’t like history will like these art works, kindly pay a visit you don’t regret.

Great way to spend a few hours. Many miniature scenes with amazing attention to detail. Get up close and you'll feel like you're there! Many objects with good descriptions written up. Lots of people when we went including children who clearly we enjoying it. Not a kid's museum per se, but I think it was very accessible to younger ages. Also, full-size reconstructions of historic buildings, some you could enter. Great place, highly recommended!

The Edo Tokyo museum was great to visit. The architecture on the exterior of the building is absolutely incredible. The price of entry is also very reasonable. We came around 10am on a Sunday of a holiday weekend in early May and we only had to wait 10 minutes to buy tickets. There are numerous displays that characterize the evolution of Tokyo, including its culture, economy, feudal reigns, etc. There are also many beautiful paintings and miniature replicas of communities that are worth seeing. We were glad to have purchased entry to the special exhibit and it was easily worth the price so buy the combo ticket! We didn't use any audio guides or guided tours but have read that they are good. Plaques have titles of objects in English but explanations are all in Japanese so use guide options if you are a museum buff.
