  • 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!

  • Finally I came here! The Museum was very cozy spot, though it was cool in the halls, perhaps due to the fact that in Moscow it was-30, very few people, no one bumps into each other, you can safely see everything, read about China, India etc. Lots for children was, saw that children watched cartoons. And a huge plus that you can see everything on the hour and a half and not get tired, as in many big museums, where a lot of information and it lost all in the head. Glad I finally visited.

  • 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.
