Edo-Tokyo Museum is a museum in
which you can learn the history and culture of Edo-Tokyo through a variety of
reference materials and reconstruction models for your fun.
The Museum was founded in March,
1993, as the place where visitors come to learn more about Tokyo's history and
culture, and which also serves as a projection onto the city and the living of
the future. In the Permanent Exhibition area, there can be found original and
replicated exhibits, as well as
large-scale models, faithful representations of their originals, which have
been reproduced after heavy investigations and research.
The volunteers can give visitors
museum outlines, and act as guides for the permanent exhibition. Our volunteers
include English, German, French, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, and Russian
speakers, though guides in some languages aｒｅ not available on some days.
