“Interesting exhibition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

Not a big place but very interesting pieces of Asian art and history. Sadly, no information in English about the exposition.

“A very nice building with free exhibitions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

Don't expect a lot of art since the place is rather tiny. However exhibitions are always very well made and very interesting. The building architecture is zen and peacefull. Quite an achivement!

“Beautiful bldg - pity there isn't much in it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

The building is beautiful, as is its setting. There are 4 rooms on the main floor, with about 10 items in each. The upper floor is devoted to photos about excavations in Cambodia, and the lowest level has a few more exhibits.
The Museum is in the park near the airport end of the Promenade des Anglais.
We love Asian art, but I wouldn't bother going again. On the other hand, if I were an architecture student, I would go.
If you drive, there is plenty or parking in the public garage nearby (which services office bldgs.) --- but I would give this one a pass.

“let your senses free!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

It is firstly, a wonderfully striking modern architectural structure. Designed by Kenzo Tanze,using the harmony of circles and squares to integrate a spirituality to this edifice. Its cultural eye-candy. the museum overlooks a lake and Phoenix Parc. Divided into four sections with outstanding works exemplifying Chinese,Japanese, Cambodian and Indian civilisations
You will experience antiques,modern,precious arts & crafts, as well as,form and colours depicting its historical originality. Its very sensitively curated and spaced. Enjoy the beauty of the jade, celadon,bronzes and sculptures in red & grey sandstone from cambodia and superb collections of silks.
This museum unites the spectrum of works that date back centuries with collections of contemporary arts. You cannot possibly do this joint quickly.
Tip....take a packed lunch with you to enjoy in the marvellous surround
tip......if you have never understood Zen.....perhaps ,this may lift your lid
