Ghibli Museum is an incredible place to visit, whether or not you know your Ghibli. The museum is designed to look like something from a Ghibli film so every detail in the building is gorgeous. We spent four leisurely hours there and even watched a short 15 minute film in their cinema. I tried getting tickets myself but they sold out within the first hour so very relieved GGYG secured them for me, however there is a premium for that so be prepared to pay.

Very, very nice museum, nice exhibition. Not very big. Unfortunately, nothing is written in English. It was still worth it, the kids (10, 13, 14) really liked it.

Pick up of tickets was super easy! Would recommend. The activity itself was a little smaller than expected, but very well worth the trip.

Super good and very reliable, they met me on site and arrived on time and were in communication with me the entire time via WhatsApp

A wonderful museum for young and old alike. A must do. The surrounding park is also magnificent for a post-Ghibli museum stroll.
