  • Exhibited art in Asia than the Museum of Oriental ceramics including Iran and Iraq. Building is patchy, is okay if it is difficult, on the first floor floor plan give. Japan exhibits is on the 3rd floor at the back. Presented by Nicholas II to Emperor Meiji ivory Eagle. A young woman was looking rather like licking a Samurai sword remained in the impression.

  • Invited girlfriend go to the Museum. Enjoy the possibilities of travel through the halls with exhibits of Eastern cultures in the same building where such distant geographically, art objects and still somewhat similar. Pleasant impression from visiting the Museum left of the invitation by Museum staff in the Cabinet. Years passed, and the Interior of the Cabinet as old photos, and still work there and typically devoted Museum business people.

  • 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.
