Interesting small museum within the grounds of Parc Phoenix

Impressive collection from diverse areas, including China, India, Cambodia. Some of the pieces were over 4,000 years old. Beautiful modern building in a great location.

For a free visit you cannot beat this place. Lovely pieces of art in a modern building that echoes the quiet style of far eastern architecture. They do occasional Japanese tea parties. A very restful peaceful place to visit. A lovely add to to a visit to Parc Phoenix which is next door.

If you have booked a tea ceremony then your experience may be much richer than mine was - but with disinterested staff at the reception and no real sense of context or storytelling you'd have to be a real aficionado to get much out of this place.

I really enjoyed it. I like all things oriental. I wanted to do a traditional tea service but this was not possible on this visit, The exhibits are delightful The staff are friendly and approachable. Would definitely go back especially for the tea service,

Very, very interesting museum! I experienced the delight of the assembled collection here! What is love for Asian culture! So carefully and the countries collected artifacts, as if it were not in Paris, but in China, or in Egypt Museum ..

Asia Museum in Paris - it was a strong impression! As if I were somewhere in Egypt))) But still I was very fascinated by an exhibition devoted to Tibetan art, it is the most extensive and interesting, lots of artifacts.

Great place to visit, it's a little bit far from the centre, but if it's good weather walking on the beach can make the distance easy. It's free, three floors. It's not too many things to see , but in total it's a good exhibition.

Free entry for a start, with a good layout of separate rooms showing different oriental cultures and a marvellous photo exhibition from the turn of the century. Well worth it, particularly if you include a visit next door to the Phoenix Parc.
