This is one of the best theme museums I've ever been.
The site is set close to the lovely Inokashira park, and the museum itself is set in beautifully landscaped grounds which are really best enjoyed on a sunny day, particularly the rooftop garden.

Omiya Bonsai Art Museum, Saitama Saitama
This museum tells you all about the different forms of bonsai, how to view bonsai, and the history of bonsai.
Great little museum that highlights bonsai.
National Museum of Western Art Taito 19.2 km away
It's nicely laid out and flows very nicely so whereas some museums explicitly label the different areas- here you follow the route round and enjoy the journey from biblical portraits through to modern art.

Tokyo National Museum The Heiseikan Uenokoen 18.8 km away
This museum is really big and when I was there, it had a special gallery with Chinese taracotta soldiers.
This museum covers everything however, and we were fascinated to see the gaps around the two popularly covered eras filled in.

The National Art Center, Tokyo Minato 22.5 km away
For art lovers, the art museums in Ueno Park, the National Art Center, and the museums around the Imperial Palace go hand-in-hand.
A few museums are as well set up as this one, which was incredible.
National Museum of Nature and Science Taito 19.2 km away
This museum is one of many museums situated in Ueno Park so if its here you're to visit, make sure you enter the building with the life sized blue whale sculpture outside, hard to miss but we managed it and entere...
the museum has relatively more "study by watching and reading" exibitits than "learn by experience" exibits comparing with other big museums in Takebashi and Odaiba but you and your kids can enjoy so much display...
Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum Chiyoda 22.2 km away
We were privileged enough to see the Great Spanish masters exhibition from the Prado but it regularly hosts fabulous works from the world's great galleries and museums.
I went to see the exhibition on the Masterpieces of Nabis from the Museum D'Orsay, which was very well done and interesting.
Shitamachi Museum Ueno 19.8 km away
This is on the southeastern edge of the large park which contains lots of other, larger museums.
Even our 11 year old daughter, who declared all museums to be boring, was interested.
The National Museum of Modern Art Chiyoda 20.7 km away
Located on the northwestern corner of the Imperial Palace area, this is a great museum for Japanese art, and although it focuses on modern art, it shows art of the past 2-3 centuries.
The Modern museum has an excellent audio guide which helped us make our way through the 3 floors of exhibits in the stunning building, which was designed by architect Taniguchi Yoshiro and built in 1969.

Mori Art Museum Minato 23.0 km away
I love to visit Contemporary Art Museums, Mori is one of my favorites by far.
The admission ticket is a bit pricey compared to other museums but if you consider that is a museum plus an observatory is slightly more acceptable.

The Sumida Hokusai Museum Sumida 22.2 km away
It’s better than other popular museums often suggested.
It's 10 minute walk from the Famous Edo tokyo museum and if you plan to visit both of them considering starting with this one because the Edo Tokyo Museum is huge and will tire you for sure.
