Edo-Tokyo Museum is a cultural facility tracing the history of the capital over the past 400 years. Original artifacts and replicas are on display with English descriptions. There is a life-sized reconstruction of the old Nihombashi Bridge, as well as a section dedicated to Tokyo during World War II. Opened in 1993, the building itself is one of Tokyo’s more unique architectural structures.
