  • One mans collection from his travels in Asia. An amazing and eclectic collection. Well presented. Not very well known but well worth a visit  more »
  • A little gem of a place full of beautiful artefacts, nicely displayed. Not many pictures to be sure, but more than compensated by the jade, pottery, wood and lacquerware on show. More for adults than ...  more »

  • Compact and welcoming; an unexpected​ gem in historic Bath - with an interesting back-story to its foundation. A small but lovingly assembled menagerie of East Asian artifacts, some dating back to the 6th century BC. Slightly tired interior, now in need of a little makeover - that said, you're not there to look at the wallpaper.
  • Sweet little place covers quite a range of east Asian artefacts, from various countries in that region and across many centuries. The galleries are spread over several floors, but there is a lift and the galleries seem spacious enough for pushchairs and wheelchairs to get around. Gallery stools (in two sizes!) are available too. Take your time, sketch something.
  • Lovely little museum which has clearly been laid out with great care, thought and pride. There are 3 floors with 4 permanent sections and a space for temporary exhibitions & also a shop.
  • great little museum with interesting artifacts - and a ticket lasts a year!
  • As the staff were unwilling or unable to open the Museum's door 5 minutes before 12PM on Sunday; I was unable to attend this museum. This unlucky circumstance in combination with the significant aloofness of the staff member with whom I spoke to, resulted in a very disappointing experience.
