  • Enjoyed our 2 hour walk through. Our boys (13 and 9) thoroughly enjoyed their journey through the history of the Olympics... especially having just followed the Tokyo Olympic event
  • Fascinating! The Tokyo 2020 exhibition was great. You can enjoy the museum regardless of your interest in sports too. Very fun, I highly recommend!
