  • In a building with modern architecture inspired by the Japanese symbolism (the heaven and the Earth), this Museum offers permanent and temporary exhibitions on Asian arts simultaneously. This is splendid. works of art are beautifully exposed and explained by signs or videos. Admission is free. Not to be missed and, why not associate it with the visit of the Park Phoenix him next to especially when we're a family with children.

  • This museum is a wonderful marble resting on the water. Temporary exhibitions are always beautiful. (Yet never tested) workshops are offered. With neighbourhood the Phoenix Park is an exceptional site.

  • 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!
