There is no ticket sale at the venue, so you must book tickets beforehand. For only around $10-$12 this is a super worthwhile experience. There's a book shop and gift store that you can buy souvenirs from. The exhibitions are so fun and educational, this is a Ghibli lover's heaven. They have a small theatre which plays a short film every 15 minutes. There's also a cafe outside to relax and enjoy some food.

Wonderful place for Studio Ghibi’s fan. There are several zones for you to enjoy, from a room where they copy the old studio from the get go for you to see how past animator works, an exhibition room contain an exhibit from the latest movie, to an outdoor zone where you can take a photo with your favorite robot character. The thing that surprised me most is that the food in the cafe was so so goooood. the milk tea and soft cream is a must try. Don’t miss it!

I would give this museum five stars if there was more to do however, for the price of ¥1000 of entry I find that it was a good value. I would pay more to have more activities more rooms, more character representation in the café. Other than that, it’s very cute and if you are a fan of Studio Ghibli you will definitely enjoy this. There’s no photos allowed to be taken inside so all I have are images from outside. You must book this in advance. There are no reservations that are made at the door. There is a wait online, so make sure you sign on as soon as the reservations start or you might miss it. Also, make sure that you watch the free film that comes with your ticket. It is so adorable. You will not regret it.

The Ghibli Museum was a beautiful work of art! This museum was full of references to the amazing Ghibli movies, and it was filled with amazing exhibits. Unfortunately, photography was not allowed inside, but all of the displays were truly out of this world. One of the best parts was watching a random short film. We watched A Sumo Wrestler’s Tail, which I highly recommend for its beautiful animation and fun story. Just seeing a glimpse into the filmography of these pieces was incredible. We were also fortunate enough to see some of the emerging cherry blossoms in the neighboring park. Do not miss out on this fabulous museum!

There’s not much to do, also photos aren’t allowed inside the museum. But maybe some fans would really enjoy the place. It’s a bit hard to appreciate the museum especially with the number of tourists inside since the building itself is a bit smaller than expected. Wish they would add in more character decorated food on their menu as well. Overall, it was an ok experience. But not sure if I can recommend.
