  • Right next to the Parc Phoenix, this is well worth a visit in its own right (though I suspect it doesn't get many visitors who haven't just been around Phoenix with their kids!) We were the only visit...  more »
  • We wanted to visit the Parc Pheonix. This little museum is right beside the park and is free. It's a little gem. A bit of a hike to get to, as it is near the airport, and there is construction everywh...  more »
  • To be honest, I was hesitant to visit the museum since I am not knowledgeable about the far east asian history and wasn't sure I would like it. I am glad I entered. The museum has a free entrance, unl...  more »

  • Super free museum, always has beautiful and interesting exhibits - and don't miss having some jasmine tea in the tea room! Recently refurbished and a beautiful water-surrounded building, worth visiting in its own right.
  • Tange building is spectacular itself, collection inside is incredible and displayed nicely. Free leaflets available at every stage allow to know more about the items. Totally free. Possibility to book tea ceremony (you have to pay for this service)
  • I didn't find museum interesting but it's for free and view from top is great
  • The building is lovely but poorly maintained: some outdoor parts were closed when we visited and numerous doors were broken. Although it might seem churlish to complain about a free museum, I have to say that the permanent collection is very small and of very little interest. We got a bus from the centre of Nice to visit this place: my advice would be to get the TGV to Paris instead, and visit the Guimet museum (which is fabulous).
  • A feast the eyes. .. Eastern culture covers the entire Asian continent well-organized rooms home pleasant exciting speaker expo's. "No to Mata Harri" was wonderful taking Paris... extend absolutely for tourists this summer!
