  • beautiful Oriental Art Museum, filled with sophisticated pieces. only dota sore was the presence of two or three groups of school tours a bit noisy (clearly impossible to manage both by teachers and by tour guides)

  • Beautiful is an understatement. from passionate of the East I think it's a lovely Museum, well organized and equipped with a very interesting part also dedicated to temporary exhibitions. One of the very few places where the staff is welcoming. I also had the opportunity to exchange with their pleasant conversation and I got surprise of their affection for the museum itself. Well worth a visit ...

  • Amazing collection, with many exhibitions throughout the year. A place to visit over and over again. Its only rival is the Egyptian museum.
  • Nice museum, located in a historical palace in the city center. The museum is divided into five areas: South Asia, China, Japan, Himalayan Region and Islamic countries. There's a nice zen garden in the entrance and a lot of beautiful pieces of art.
  • As someone who is not particularly fascinated with Asian art I enjoyed this medium-sized museum much more than I was expecting. Very well done displays and some pretty impressive pieces that were fascinating. Help desk was incredibly informative and kind describing each of the different temporary exhibitions. My favorite part was an amazing National Geographic photographic exhibition on the Silk Road but I am not sure how long it will be displayed.
  • The location is nice and the permanent collections on the second floor is the most astonishing part of the museum. Unfortunately, Japanese and Islamic areas aren't that big.
  • Mind boggling art Percy's from different parts of the eastern world. There's a collection of Indian sculptures, Japanese art, statutes from different statutes from the rest.
