Since its opening on March 28, 1993, the Tokyo Metropolitan Edo-Tokyo Museum has dedicated itself to presenting the history of Tokyo from the Edo period (1603–1867) using a wealth of documents, materials, and models. The Museum’s 9,000-square-meter permanent Exhibition Room features life-size reproductions of the Nihonbashi Bridge, a theater, and a newspaper office, as well as elaborately staged movable and interactive models that have delighted many visitors. The Edo-Tokyo Museum, with this dynamic exhibition space, has been closed for a long time since April 1, 2022, for large-scale renovations.
The Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum, which opened at the same time as a branch of the Edo-Tokyo Museum, relocates and restores historical buildings that once existed in Edo-Tokyo, as well as holding special exhibitions on varied themes, such as architecture or the history of the Tama region, in its Exhibition Room. At this time, the permanent exhibition of the Edo-Tokyo Museum, which has been closed for so long, will be arranged in a more compact layout to offer a glimpse into the history of Tokyo, including the materials and models on display, in addition to the collection of the Musashino Folklore Museum, the predecessor of the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum.
