This museum is worth visiting if a special exhibition is on (the regular exhibits are not particularly interesting and don’t have much in the way of English explanations). On the 1st floor, the Roji Tempō is a reconstruction of a typical merchant area in Kyoto during the Edo period (this section can be entered free; some of the shops sell souvenirs and serve local dishes). Check the Kyoto Visitors Guide for upcoming special exhibitions.
