  • This small museum on the edge of Parc Monceau is to be discovered for lovers of Asian art. Free admission. Unfortunately there are few things left of this beautiful mansion. The presentation of the works is perfect. Japan, Vietnam, China are represented. Everyone can find their happiness according to their attractions. I really enjoyed the temporary exhibition on Chinese revolutionary art under Mao. A real discovery. I highly recommend.

  • Beautiful discovery, this museum conceals some treasures! The audioguide is well done, comments just as it takes with context elements and focus on selected works. The Tigress alone deserves the visit! And many other lesser known but equally interesting wonders! Do not neglect this beautiful address!
