Edo-Tokyo Museum

The Nihongo|Edo-Tokyo Museum|江戸東京博物館|Edo Tōkyō Hakubutsukan is a museum of the history of Tokyo, established in 1993. The main features of the permanent exhibitions are the life-size replica of the Nihonbashi, which was the bridge leading into Edo; the Nakamuraza theatre; scale models of town; and buildings from the Edo, Meiji and Shōwa periods.

The museum is located in Ryōgoku adjacent to the Ryōgoku Kokugikan. The distinctive elevated shape of museum's building is modeled after an old storehouse in the "kurazukuri" style.

The Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum is a branch of the Edo-Tokyo Museum.
