Fire Museum, Shinjuku

(4.2/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Witness the historical development of Japan's fire department on a family-friendly tour of Fire Museum. Start on the sixth floor, where special exhibits and a children's room complete with firefighter-related games and videos will keep all ages entertained. Working downwards, chart the progression from the perils of 17th-century firefighting, depicted in a traditional bunraku puppet show on the fifth floor, through to the technological advancements since the mid-1800s, showcased on the fourth floor. Today's high-tech equipment sported by mannequins on the third floor offer an interesting contrast. Cap off the tour with a bite to eat and a view of the area on the tenth-floor observation deck. Arrange your visit to Fire Museum and discover more family-friendly attractions in Tokyo using our Tokyo trip itinerary planner.

  • There was a nice old fire truck retro. Guests can also drive like adults! I enjoyed the sons for 1 and half years old can actually ride vehicles and helicopters.
