Museum is easily accessible by JR Sobu line Ryogoku station. Entrance tickets can be purchased from self service machine or counter inside. Don’t forget the discounts or free entrance if you have school children. The exhibits within are well curated and many are “hands-on”, good...More

This museum was not on the top of my to-see list but I'm glad I paid a visit. The sense of space alone is awe inspiring. All the exhibits are housed under an indoor stadium-like structure with no visible pillars. And they really made use...More

And I really mean LOTS of history. So go pick what you want to see. Many miniatures, paintings, photos, things of all kind and lots of Japanese school children, too. Volunteers offer free guided tours in several languages.

日本人であっても一度は行ってもいいかな?と思える博物館。結構内容が充実しており、また室内なので雨の心配もいりません。都営ですから価格も安く、子供連れには良いかもしれません。難点は駐車料金が高いことくらいかと思います。 もし外国人をご案内するつもりであれば、是非、無料のガイドツアーを利用することをお勧めします。 It’s good place to learn Japanese Culture. This museum has a lot of historical buildings and stuffs inside. And also, they provide a giddies tour with free. It takes 1.5 hours. It’s a little bit long but if you want to learn Japanese...More

I already visited the museum. The lockers are small, not suitable for a carry on. But they can store bigger luggage at the ticketing counter by the coin lockers they have a special room for that. 😉
