  • The Cernuschi Museum is glued to the Monceau Park and it is very nice, after or before a walk in the Park, to a stop. Not particularly being fan of Asian art, I didn't will go if I don't I was faced by chance. I have not regretted. The pieces in the permanent collection are beautiful and the buddha, which overlooks the Hall Han, is breathtaking.

  • In this beautiful Mansion is preserved a rich collection of Asian art (mainly: China, Japan, Korea and Viet Nam). The visit follows a path through different historical periods in Asia where the works reflected the richness. It is possible to attend lectures that can be lead by conservatives in an auditorium of the most modern. The Museum is not long to visit but still very informative. The scenography is good and very well-appointed space. In addition there is not too many people making the visit even more pleasant. As for the staff of the Museum it is the more charming! Nice and always eager to advise visitors. This is just my opinion, but I came away from this visit grown!
