The Edo-Tokyo Museum (江戸東京博物館, Edo Tōkyō Hakubutsukan) is housed in an unique looking building located in the Ryogoku district. The museum's permanent exhibition vividly illustrates the past of Tokyo (formerly Edo) through its exhibits and covers many features of the capital from the Edo Period to relatively recent decades.

In an interactive way, visitors are able to experience and learn about various aspects of earlier Tokyo, such as the way of life of people, Edo Period architecture, cultural heritage, political climate, commercial situation and more. Through numerous models of towns, figurines and life-sized figures, the museum makes it interesting to find out about how towns were constructed in the past.
