Beautiful collection of Oriental stuff!
Aug 2018 • Solo
This is definitely the biggest collection of Oriental stuff in Spain, with 18 salas putting on display precious artifacts from China, Japan and the Philippines. I was particularly fascinated by the collection from the Philippines ... icons or religious statues made of ivory, wooden "anitos" (deities) from Northern Luzon, native bracelets, weapons, woven and brass products from Mindanao, richly adorned religious manuscripts, and so forth. It's good to know that some of the cultural materials from my country are well-preserved and taken care of even in Spain, thanks to the contact that existed between the Filipinos and the early Spanish missionaries from the 16th century onward. Valladolid in itself is a lovely city, with so much to offer. Do drop by the Museo Oriental when you visit the place. Thumbs up!

Tired of religious art, but love art, go here!
Nov 2018 • Couples
Although the display's are a little dated and have no English titles, this museum has what is called the best collection of Asian art in Spain. Note to independent travelers, not open in the mornings to you, only after lunch. Location in the depths of a religious university is a little difficult to find, but once at the front door of the complex you will be directed to the Museum. Admission fee very reasonable 2.50 Euros, I think. Worth a visit

The Best Oriental Art Museum in Spain
Sep 2017 • Couples
This is the third time that my wife and I visit the Oriental Museum. There is much to see here from the Philippines, China and Japan. Many of the treasures that one can see here were donated by people who had collections of oriental art. Many art objects found here are very beautiful.

I was a student at this College where this Museum is located. I was last there in 1983. This was a trip down memory lane for me and sharing my life with my wife. It was beautiful as was the museum and the staff. Personally, I wasn't disappointed.

Hidden Gem
Sep 2011 • Friends
This is a hidden gem: it is a small museum in the basement of a monastery at the city centre, but contains the best Spanish collections of art from the Phillipines, China and Japan . Unfortunately, the displays are old fashion, and (when I visited) many labels still needed translation

An Amazing Museum
Sep 2010 • Couples
The Museo Oriental has the largest collection of Oriental art in Spain. The Augustinian Fathers went to Christianize the Philippines in the 16th century. Fray Urdaneta was an expert navigator and he found the sea route from Manila to Mexico. The Augustinian Fathers Christianized the Philippines and then went to China and Japan. As they were working in these countries, they were also collecting the best art they could find. The art collections were put into this museum in 1980 and has 18 large rooms full of this Oriental art. There are ceramics, sculptures and paintings. This is a wonderful place to visit.
