Time Out says

Located next to the National Stadium, the two-floor Japan Olympic Museum is an informative and well-designed museum dedicated to both the history of the Olympics and Japan’s previous Olympic Games. The first floor is completely free: there’s an information video plus temporary exhibits – currently on display are the torches and official uniforms that will be used for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games

Tickets are required for the second floor, which delves into a detailed history of the Olympics and Japan’s contributions to the Games. You can even try your hand at racing and compare yourself to the gold medalists' stats. 

The outdoor monument gallery is a must-see and completely free: you'll find sculptures of the Olympic Cauldrons from Japan’s previously hosted Games, in addition to the iconic Olympic Rings.
