Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
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.
