  • A very small collection but there are fine pieces here, and well displayed, in that great rarity, a graceful and attractive modern building, nicely situated on a lake/pond (water filthy though). Eccentric zoo and charming palm house next door. Paid admission.
  • Small but well curated, it's probably an hour visit at the most. Just beside the airport so perfect way to kill a bit of time before our flight. There's not an overload of objects so I felt able to appreciate what was there better. The signage is in French but there are cards with English descriptions in each room. Beautiful building too.
  • Museum is well laid out. Architecture enhances exhibits . Exhibits are a pleasure to view.
  • Must see. Good display of Asian culture and history. I really enjoyed. The temporary exhibition of a mongolian painter was a treat!
  • Lovley...must see
