  • Excellent displays but too few in English
  • Well done museum, but quite minimal English signage. To be fair, there's free English audio guides available that I didn't use. I skipped the temporary exhibition on the 2F after being confronted with their staff that is very rude towards foreigners (1F was friendly, though).
  • Provides an interesting insight into Japanese history.
  • The museum was very well organized, and offered a small guide book in English, although I would recommend going with someone who knows Japanese well if you can't read it. The displays were interesting, and there were many things to see! Definitely worth a visit!
  • A good range of exhibitions however the extra charge to go into special exhibits is not worth it
