  • €6 per adult. Friendly and welcoming staff. In the Palace of St. Michael and St. George and the collection is quite large and varied. There are collections of Japanese, Chinese, Indian and Nomadic Central Asian art, to name a few. There is plenty to see and most of the signs are in Greek and English. However, some of the tv monitors weren’t working. In some places the lights were very dim, most likely to protect the delicate artwork, but it did make it difficult to see. Also, in a few sections the bulbs were simply gone. It would be good to get a little more information on the three main rooms on the first floor, one appears to be a throne room and there are huge paintings in the rooms as well. You could easily spend two hours here. Also, to the left of the main entrance are some rooms detailing the history of the building and it’s significance as well as the history of the Heptenesian/Ionian state from 1800 to its unification with Greece in 1864. There is bathroom facilities. Small and tiny gift shop. Audio guides available. No lifts or easy access for those with prams or wheelchairs.
  • Surprisingly good museum of Asian art and history. Many interesting artifacts and good info in English. The building itself is impressive too!
  • Strangely but this museum in Corfu has better collection of orient art that some big and famous museums. Also the building itself (a palace actually) is quite important historically and just dazzling. So do not skip it if you in Corfu town!
  • A really lovely experience. The building is cool, grand and feels very relaxed inside and the exhibition takes you through the spiritual and artistic history of China, India and Japan. Interesting and inspiring.
  • It's got a great collection of exhibits with really good explaination boards in both Greek and English. There's a good display showing the development of Chinese art and artifacts through the dynasties. A display of Indian religious images which also showed the influence of Greek art due the Alexander the Great's conquest. Finally, a lovely display of Japanese art and artifacts through the ages. We spent a very enjoyable 3 hours there. Oh, and it's nice and cool ;-)
