We checked the website before we went. The museum was scheduled to be open. The door even showed a sign, "OPEN." Nevertheless, the door was locked. We knocked repeatedly - no reaction. This happened on Wed 30 Dec., 12:30. A disgusting experience!

We were surprised when we saw this museum on Trip Advisor ... so we made sure that we visited. They get an A for effort, but that's about it. Very limited exhibits ..

Poorly funded, unfortunately, but still a nice place to visit on your way out of town. Not sure about cost, but I know it's not free.

We were pleasantly surprised at the beautiful treasures in the exhibit areas. The manager was very helpful and informative. He makes the most beautiful masks that are for sale at the gift shop.

Staff is friendly and seem to enjoy educating people about asian culture. Which I love since that's the reason I went there. They have very beautiful displays and authentic asian stuff in their gift shop. WILL BE BACK.

This little museum is pretty interesting, but the displays need some work and organization. Perhaps that has been taken care of. It has been nearly a year since we attended.

We went to this place after we left the visitors center. The lady at the front desk was so very sweet. They don't do guided tours but she walked us through a few of the pieces they had there and gave us a brief history of the museum and then she left us to ourselves. It's was a nice place.... More
