First of all, I would like to say buying tickets for Ghibli Museum is very competitive, especially when you want to visit there during weekend or holidays. Every 10th of the month, Ghibli Museum opens tickets for the very next month. For example, you will be able to buy April’s ticket from March 10th.

It will be JPY 700 for middle school/high school students and JPY 400 for elementary school students. Are you with kid below 4 years old? If so, the ticket fee for your kid will be free!
