This was one of the highlights of our trip to Tokyo. It is a fantastic museum especially if you have young children. It has many interactive features and the kids have multiple opportunities to experience what life was in that time. Not to be missed.

This museum tells the history of Tokyo by putting it in the context of it's times. The exhibitions are nothing short of magificent. Each exhibit includes many different kinds of presentations, artifacts, life-sized displays, maps, etc. The museum really goes out of it's way to bring each period in Tokyo to life in the mind of the viewer. Each part explains everything in detail, from what the daily life of Samurai retainer was like, to the economy of the Edo Period, to how the city changed during the Meiji Restoration, to the daily life of a family in the 1920/30s and so on.'

I dont much go for mueseums but this was an interesting one worth the 600 yens entrance fee. The building itself is really sci-fi like with its huge monumental structure. Inside there are really great replicas, maketts of japanese stuff in all sizes from small to large. You can take flash photos almost very exhibition item and go in a traditional japanese home.
