    Hi there,

    How would you rank these 3 museums in terms of potential appeal to 5.5 and 2.5 year old boys? Love your blog, btw! So helpful!

    Thanks,

    Gigi

      Miraikan then the Ueno museum and then Kitanomaru museum. The first two are very close in quality. Ueno has much more to do in the park around it (zoo, amusement park, playground, and is very close to the subway/JR stop). Miraikan is a little out in the middle of nowhere and bit of a walk from the nearest station (but not too far). Hope that helps.
