Wonderful collection of mostly Chinese (some Japanese ) works of art including ceramics, bronze, wood, bamboo and lots of jade. The only negative is that because of the confines of a Georgian house, the display cabinets are very narrow and the items are crowded together....More

A little gem of a place full of beautiful artefacts, nicely displayed. Not many pictures to be sure, but more than compensated by the jade, pottery, wood and lacquerware on show. More for adults than small children, I would think - though, with guidance everyone...More

This is one man's collection of exquisite artworks from jade to textiles with temporary exhibitions of note. The lovely ceramics are the reason for my own visit. Good books on Japanese ceramics in the shop.

Quite a big place (basically on a Terraced house with 3 levels) but I did expect a bit more of art work, but overall a pretty good place worth visiting.

An amazing little museum nestled close to our charming guest house (Brock's). Wonderful staff and incredible collection of small sculptures, ceramics, and lacquer ware. The collection can be appreciated in short visits but lends itself to much for in depth enjoyment.

Amazing collection with great little signs that give you an insight into the symbolism and richness of Asian Art. Thoroughly recommend.

I had heard of this museum before, but when I got there it took my breath away - okay I'm a mad collector of Chinese ceramics so this was ambrosia for me. Superbly displayed over 3 floors, the mix of ceramics, jades, lacquer and bronzes...More
