Time Out says

The Suginami Animation Museum by the Tokyo Polytechnic University is surprisingly engaging, with a host of hands-on experiences. A visit makes for an excellent introduction into the world of Japanese anime, with exhibits focusing on the history and production of most Japanese anime including ‘Rascal the Racoon’, ‘Crayon Shin-chan’ and ‘Doraemon’. Through the interactive exhibits, you can even dub over an ‘Astro Boy’ video, draw your own animation in a computer room and go behind the scenes to explore the production process. There’s even an anime library plus a small theatre playing anime shows on loop. English audio guides and subtitles cover the exhibits and videos, keeping it tourist-friendly, while the inclusion of both vintage and modern anime makes the museum fun for the whole family.
