Fire Museum 消防博物館, Shinjuku
(4.1/5 based on 140 reviews on the web)
Witness the historical development of Japan's fire department on a family-friendly tour of Fire Museum 消防博物館. 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 消防博物館 and discover more family-friendly attractions in Tokyo using our Tokyo trip itinerary planner.

  • 在四谷三丁目出站,出口直接通博物館,頂樓可以吃東西也可以看VIEW(對面是中型超市),六樓有戶外直昇機,可以入機艙,近距離拍照,其他大型消防車,消防衣帽試穿,全部都是"無料",去的時候超多日本父母帶小朋友去的。離新宿御苑只有一站,去完可以去新宿御苑逛逛無敵大草坪 
  • Damn is that graced the Red helicopter roof balcony, stopped by a little bit. History starting from the Edo blaze with free admission and various fire fighting vehicles and exhibits, there being people. Essential helicopter sits freely in the cockpit and take pictures and small children line up had to flee. I think to revisit at a vacant and slowly look. Yotsuya-Sanchome, directly connected to access feel free at any time!

  • Findlay first type compact floor, occasionally moving around your child. Has excellent exhibits.

  • I highly recommend this. Worth a visit, on a rainy day or on the way. Next to the metro station, educational and fun. Best of all, it is for free.
  • Great to for kids on a rainy day. Lots of interactive exhibits to keep them entertained. Top floor has a nice eating area with a good view out over Tokyo. Best of all it's free.
  • Lovely place to learn about fire prevention. Free entrance

  • Kids had tons of fun here! And it's free!!!
