Museum Shop Tokyo National Museum Reviews
上野の東京国立博物館の入館チケット売り場前にあるガラス張りの外観のショップです。入館ゲート前にあるので、入館料を支払わなくても利用する事が可能です。扱っている商品自体は少なめですが、歴史や美術、考古学に関する書籍や歴史関連グッズなどが並んでいました。奥に休憩スペースもあり、博物館鑑賞後の休憩所としての利用価値も高いです。 more »This is a glass-walled shop in front of the entrance ticket office of The Tokyo National Museum in Ueno. Because it is in front of the entrance gate, it is possible to use it without paying the entrance fee. There are few products on the market, but there were books on history, art and archaeology, as well as historical goods. There is also a rest space in the back, and the use value as a rest place after the museum appreciation is high.

Largest of many art books in the main shop, and dealing with some special exhibition-related are fully equipped. Also, the many original goods from the collection of the TNM, souvenir will be fun.
Nice shop. The souvenir selection is kinda limited though, for false admirers of art like myself at least.
A wonderful museum. A steal at less than 700円. We spent 4 hours just exploring one of the buildings. Spectacular artifacts with descriptions in multiple languages including English. Thousands of years of exhibits. An outstanding and surprisingly reasonably priced gift shop. Gorgeous garden behind the main building. Come early and spend the whole day for shockingly little money.
