If you love to learn about and enjoy Asian Art this is the most fabulous museum to visit. Located not far from the Eiffel Tower, you can get away from the distracting crowds and enjoy a sublime experience of art from SE Asia and beyond. The collection is extensive and you need time to experience this well laid out museum. There is also a small, but very good cafe to visit to balance the journey through these various cultures. You will not regret this divergence from usual overcrowded tourist attractions.

We would never have visited this lesser known Museum had not a friend recommended it & we are so glad they did. The art work is beautifully displayed &, unlike the larger museums in Paris, not crowded. We loved the exhibition of Japanese woodblock paintings & the screens.

Anything you want to know or see about the previously grand French Indochina you'll find here. Unfortunately, this museum being private, access is not cheap.

The enormous collection of Asian art and artifacts (the largest outside of Asia) is a bit overwhelming. I wish I had done some homework before my visit; the Guimet website is a good resource. However, you don't have to be well-schooled in Asian history to enjoy this amazing museum. I spent a good two hours wandering through the museum, enjoying the solitude (no crowds!) as well as the art.
