The Edo-Tokyo Museum is a historical museum in Tokyo in the Ryogoku district. The museum was opened in March 1993 to preserve the cultural heritage of Edo. The museum's permanent exhibition illustrates the past of Tokyo (known as Edo until 1869) and covers many features of the capital from the Edo period to the relatively recent decades. In addition to the permanent exhibition, there are regular special exhibitions that deal with Tokyo-related topics.


From April 2022 until 2025 (estimated), the Edo-Tokyo Museum will be closed for major renovations. Read more
