The museum has exhibitions of sculptures, potteries, paintings, books and artifacts from China, Korea, Japan and India. The Chinese section has artifacts from several dynasties. It is rightly named China before China. There is a separate exhibition about books and printing in china. The Japan and Korean Sections have potteries and paintings. There are also small number of artifacts from... More

We went on a Tuesday since it was open until 8pm (Tue-Fri until 5pm). We arrived at around 7.15pm so we rushed through it. Ideally we would have spent at least an hour to read the displays. When we visited there were some parts of the museum which were closed for renovation. The major exhibits are the Japanese and Chinese... More

I recommend to visit this museum to everyone. They have great collections of Japanese, Korean and Chinese art and books. Sometimes you can hit a theme exhibition like "The Japanese characters" this spring. The location of the museum also offer unusual and stunning view of The Royal Palace.

I didn't know this museum existed up until I was involved in a work project there. So I was fortunate to see it without paying, but I think it's worth a visit. They have a very nice collection of Asian artifacts, a HUGE collection of books and a cafe and shop.

I stumbled across this museum when I got off the ferry at the wrong stop. Get the ferry to Djurgarden from Gamla Stan and it only takes 10 minutes to get to the island of Skeppsholmen. The museum is located here. It was not the kind of museum I expected to find in Stockholm. There were some very interesting exhibits... More

I really liked the temporary Exhibition 'Hidden Love', besides that I found the museum quite boring. It is what it says - a museum of antiquities. Not quite to my taste. The café was sterile, but had nice pastry and soda drinks...

The East Asiatic Museum is lodged in the old Navy Armory on Ship Island. It's a long building with focus on China from the earliest days until ca 1900. The latter centuries mainly consist of china traded to Sweden by the East India Company in the 18th century. The earlier ones show a lot of fantastic grave figurines, some of... More

Perhaps the most beautiful museum in all Stockholm. Exquisite collections, beautifully and instructively presented.
