This museum was better than expected. At the beginning didn't like it, around the southeast Asia part, cause everything was almost the same type of collection. Then i went to the Nepal, Tibet area and really liked it. Had free entrance by being U-26. There's...More

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 not a museum which will top the lists of Paris travel guides, but it is a real gem and overlooked. Not very big, so you can quite easily see most of it in one go. Excellent collections from Asia (southeast, China, Japan, Korea,...More

This museum has a major collection of Asian art treasures, covering many cultures and time periods. All beautifully-displayed in a very grand building. Don't miss it if you enjoy Asian art.

are small art galleries and homes of historical
