I guess your level of enjoyment with this museum, as with everything, is how much you are gripped by the topic and your level of understanding. I'm not well acquainted with Asian art so I drifted around with not a lot of insight into exhibits...More

On rue Velazquez overlooking Park Monceau, this great little museum is a treasure. I spent a quiet hour & a half admiring their small, but really impressive collection. Admission is free, but there is a charge for the audioguide. A stroll through the park after...More

A charming mid-sized museum of Chinese art, less overwhelming than the Musée Guimet, the national museum of Asian art. The perdant collection is free, but temporary exhibitions have an entrance fee. I went to see an exhibit on the culture of incense in Imperial China...More

What a remarkable collection of Chinese and Japanese art works from major Dynasties over the years! Moreover, it was breathtaking to see the very large Buddha, which took up a very large percentage of the first floor! Some have suggested that M. Cernuschi built his...More

Best reason to visit: It's set in a magnificent mansion that is typical of the fancy houses built in Paris late Nineteenth Century. Collection is good enough.
