Visit tips

1. Don’t visit on a school holiday – Weekends are okTokyo Subway Museum

2. Buy the stamp book for 210 yen at the gift shop inside. Your kids will love searching out the stamps

3. The large subway model and the movie only show 3-4 times a day. Best time to go and see both is between 10:00-12:00 and 1:30 -3:30. (lunch time seems to be down time). Sorry in advance if they change times.
