Oh my heavens. I’m a confirmed Asia-file, but this place was heaven. So much to look at! So beautiful and interesting. Very well presented. Really cover all of Asia with a special emphasis in China. LOVED the fact tickets allow entry twice on different days. Great gift shop. temporary Meiji exhibition very interesting. Go! Twice!!
Impressive collection in a beautiful space. I highly recommend you give yourself at least 1 hour to focus on each of the four levels. You can also zip around selected galleries and still enjoy their collections. This museum is part of the Paris Museum Pass. Highly recommend it for visitors.
Love this place. Very nice pieces with very few people around - the way i like museums. Good and cheap restaurant downstairs.
It is a great Asian museum with rich information of Asia that contains Chine, Japan, Korea, Afghan, India etc. There are a lot exclusive work from late 20th centuries. Make sure to check out the gallery downstairs. Real solid and informative Asian history work you would not want to miss. By the way, no photos downstairs.
Exquisite collection of Asian art, and a great respite from a very touristy part of Paris. Highlights include Guimet's library, a very comprehensive collection of southeast Asian stone sculptures, and a robust Tibetan section. Worth visiting during exhibit highlighting paper products from around Asia, which includes pieces from the original Guimet voyage, and walks visitors through available writing materials across the region and how it impacted dissemination of religion and information.
