There are many beautiful pieces in the variety of collections from different countries. They are also well presented and well arranged. The buildings also have beautiful interior under the dome. Check the map or you may miss some of the great displays.

This museum was better than expected. At the beginning didn't like it, around the southeast Asia part, cause everything was almost the same type of collection. Then i went to the Nepal, Tibet area and really liked it. Had free entrance by being U-26. There's...More

A beautiful building home to a large collection of Asian art running from Korea down though former French Indochina and west to Afghanistan. The collection of objects from Japan and China is grand and then it gets even better when one gets to the objects...More

There are multiple floors of art and history from China, Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, etc. I especially enjoyed their display of Daimyo Armor from the feudal lords. They have some impressive armor and you can get up close to study it. We spent a couple of...More

This is not a museum which will top the lists of Paris travel guides, but it is a real gem and overlooked. Not very big, so you can quite easily see most of it in one go. Excellent collections from Asia (southeast, China, Japan, Korea,...More

famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
