A museum dedicated to oriental art - a very different and fresh museum. Arts from all over asia including : Buddhism, Persia, Caucasus, Mongolia, Korea and many many more. The gallery of Roerich is amazing. The museum is in russian, however.

small museum in the center of Moscow with a very interesting collection of central- Asia art and artefacts. Plus temporary exhibition: now about Tylos -archeologic history of the Kingdom of Bahrain- very instructive and very well done.
