Museums in Tokyo – Part 1

Aside from plenty of parkland, Ueno is also the site of a dozen or so of Tokyo’s museums. We visited just three of them during our stay.

The first was the natural history museum.

It’s entrance, with its blue whale, is quite impressive. Much of the building was built around the turn of the century.

But inside it was much more modern, and has what we thought was one of the best collections of dinosaurs in a public museum anywhere.
