This Asian art museum has an expansive collective covering many cultures of Asia. Stuff from the empire, stuff from French collectors. A lovely survey.

Exquisitely well arranged, this museum has a truly extensive array of artefacts drawn from throughout the Far East- mostly one person's collection. But the absence of any refreshments on site remains a pain!

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.

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 the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
