  • Small but well chosen selection of Asian objets d'art. Very good selection of Buddhist icons and images in the downstairs section, which are farily well-explained. A little bit away from the centre.....  more

  • Large collection of Asian Sculptures, paintings, stamps, coins, jewelry, tapestries, carvings. Good for kids and adults. Tables and desks for sitting down to read the multilingual information (English, French, Spanish) or view the exhibits. Hopefully some or all will be replicated and the originals can go back to their home countries where they belong.
  • Extremely interesting, many real masterpieces! Of course to join with spirit of this museum is very helpful to have at least a little knowledge about philosophy and religious values of presented culture. With pleasure I would like to visit ones again.
