Summer Night Museums

5:00pm – 9:00pm

As the temperature gets to ridiculous highs, it’s the perfect time to hide out at an air-conditioned museum — at night.

Many museums in Tokyo will open their doors after hours on Friday nights from 5 p.m. to either 8 p.m. or 9 p.m.

What museums?

As well as the museums below, the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum in Koganei Park will hold a special night event from Aug. 3 to 4 (from 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.). There will also be a mystery solving event at most places.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
