A Wonderland for Learning About the Past! Experience the Sophistication of Edo at this Museum
Edo-Tokyo Museum is a popular tourist facility for those who wish to know more about Tokyo’s past while contemplating its future.
With the 400-year history of the Edo Shogunate as the main focus of its permanent exhibition, both reproductions and actual items expressing the culture and history of Edo-Tokyo are introduced here.
In the Special Exhibition Room on the 1st floor, such exhibits are held several times a year. Until now, these have been mainly about the history and culture of Edo-Tokyo. However, a wide variety of exhibits are held here, such as those of manga artists Tezuka Osamu and Mizuki Shigeru.
There is a Special Exhibition Room on the 1st floor, an Edo-Tokyo Terrace on the 3rd floor, and the Permanent Exhibition Rooms are on the 5th and 6th floors.
The Permanent Exhibition Area on the 5th floor is divided into 3 planned exhibits, the Feature Exhibition Room, the Edo Zone and the Tokyo Zone.
On the 1st floor, special exhibitions are held 5-6 times a year.
Among the items in the museum’s possession are important cultural assets.
It is also equipped with facilities for learning, such as a book and video library.
