Instead of an entrance fee to this museum, you put a mere ¥200 into the vending machine by the front door and get a token. This is redeemed at the front desk for a cupful of medals used to play the 30-40 arcade machines inside (others can be played for just ¥10-30 yen), most of which are about 50 years old. Akihabara this is not: instead it is a fun, laid back hangout for local kids and adults alike, as well as some adventurous tourists.
