  • For Asian art lovers, China, Tibet, Nepal, Cambodia... some nice rooms but not many, far too much facsimile.... The Museum is a private property so the person has only the entrances to maintain his collection, must help this initiative

  • This museum contains a bit of culture on China. The tour of the photo exhibition is free, however the Museum part is paid: 10 euros/person. A bit pricey for my taste also I did only the Expo part.

  • The Museum is not very large, but nevertheless possesses a large number of beautiful works of art (mainly from India, Nepal, Tibet or Myanmar, but also from China-and some few pieces from Japan, Laos or Indonesia...). The visit can be done by following a paper guide given at the entrance which explains the meaning of the main exhibits presented-sheets available on tables as well as superb books allow to deepen a particular subject of interest. This commendable effort of pedagogy on the part of the enthusiasts of the Association who manages the Museum compensates a museography not very modern, but probably in relation to the means available to this museum that it is necessary to see: there are really remarkable works. A museum to support!

  • Really nice art collection, small enough to do it throughly in 2-3h.
  • Wide ranging collection with interesting artifacts but presentation could be better.
  • Unique artifacts and beautifully displayed
  • It is ok. Interesting. A good place to go in case of rain.

  • The most beautiful Museum after Guimet in Paris! I go back regularly to see new pieces because they change regularly and for their temporary exhibitions. Always the same happiness!
