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.

For the first time since the pandemic, many museums in Tokyo will open their doors after hours, 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. 5 to 6 (from 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.) and the Zukan Night Museum is back on Friday nights. 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.
