Some of the best museums in the city such as Tokyo National Museum, Museum of Western Art and Edo-Tokyo Museum charge an admission fee, and they are worth it. But fact is, visiting all the museums in Tokyo – and there are many, including the weird and the wonderful ones – can get pricey.
The good news is, our capital has a large variety of institutions which are completely free to enter. From vintage fire trucks and original police cars to picture books and chocolate, there are lots to see without paying a single yen. So spend some fun yet educational hours at these free museums, and save your budget for a cheap Michelin-starred meal. And if you're still contemplating on whether to fork out that admission charge for the city's major museums, you'll be glad to know that they offer free-entry on selected days.
