A free museum a short walk from the Modern Art museum, this is housed in a building with long corridors. It contains artefacts from China, Japan and Korea. The most interesting part for me was with the Buddhist and other sculptures.

If you go to this museum you will probably go to the Moderna Museum the same day, so don't waste your time and go straight to the Moderna Museum. The collection is small and uninteresting. It is free though.

Not on the same scale as the museum in San Francisco, but nonetheless a well-designed and curated museum of Asian art.

Even if it is quite hidden and tiny, it is one of the most complete displays of art in China; I was surprised to find a stele, some very rare shang bronze vessels and a collection, small but complete of ceramics and statues from every...More

Highlight was the Chinese exhibit. Approximately fifteen items per dynasty with informative text. From 2000 BC drinking vessels to 18th Century vases & plates. Also Japanese armour and artwork, statues from far east religions, Korean furniture. A short walk up path from 65 bus stop...More
