The huge Guimet has great many exhibits from most Asian cultures, but the highlight I would say are the Chinese collections. Some of the very best old (ie Xia, Shang, Zhou, Han) bronzes outside China and Taiwan, marvellous ceramics, and fantastic sculptures. However they could...More

Broad collection of excellent pieces of Asian art. Some English labels and explanations. Temporary Meiji exhibition was awesome. Must see if you're an Asian art fan.

This Asian art museum has an expansive collective covering many cultures of Asia. Stuff from the empire, stuff from French collectors. A lovely survey.

A beautiful building home to a large collection of Asian art running from Korea down though former French Indochina and west to Afghanistan. The collection of objects from Japan and China is grand and then it gets even better when one gets to the objects...More

This is the neighborhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendor, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
