  • So a lot of interesting rare exhibits. All reviewed by country, age, etc. The museum itself, dilapidated, restoration would be very useful. Oh and audioguide slipped up, oddly enough. All the same I advise everyone to go-a great Museum!

  • Long live in Moscow, but only recently got into the Museum of the East. It's very cozy museum complex under one roof. Systematized Exposition on countries and peoples. Exhibition material, of course cannot accommodate all that collected in the Museum, but even this is too much material for one visit. If the excursion to visit, the more it is unclear what percentage of the information stays in your head. So better exploring exposition of parts. Extremely privlekaetel'nym Hall appears to be Korean, Japanese, Chinese cultures. And here without a guide or audio guide will not work. Opening hours udo'nye, no queues. There is a museum shop, but the range was very meager would commemorative postcards about the Museum, and there's more scientific work.

  • Come down to the State Museum of Oriental art, very interesting and informative, is located in the House That the Nikitsky Boulevard. The Museum is not very big but very rich collection, passing from one room to the other, get to know the history of the development of the cultures of Iran, India, Central Asia, the Caucasus, Siberia and the far East, China, Korea, Tibet, Japan, a large collection of Japanese netsuke figurines, you can look at the clock. Room with paintings of Nicholas Roerich and Svyatoslav Nikolaevich Roerich-incredible enthusiasm, such crazy paint!

  • A fairly small museum worth visiting if you are interested in the Oriental and Middle Eastern culture. Don't go there expecting to spend more than a couple of hours, though. Almost all exhibits have English descriptions, but the text feels very stiff and unnecessarily scientific. I think it takes some effort to write something about netsuke that would make the reader fall asleep. Almost no text on the exhibits is translated, which is a huge shame. The Japanese collection is small, and so is the Chinese one. Many Soviet museum stereotypes are valid in this one, too, such as every single item being hidden deep behind non-anti-glare glass, or the staff members being too numerous and not hesitating to chat, eat something or listen to the radio right next to the exhibits.
  • This museum had huge collections of East and western Asian art and they had a beautiful Nepal exhibit. They had a decent size Japanese and Korean exhibits with a small China exhibit but the had quite a bit of Asian countries, some in Russia (Caucasus) and the far East like Thailand and Cambodia on display. A great museum if you are looking to read into a bit of many Asian cultures.
  • Very interesting museum.has big amoung of historical things.
  • Great to visit at weekdays in the morning
  • A wonderful Museum! You can learn a lot about themselves and other cultures, I advise everyone to visit and more than once.
