A 5,000-year journey to Asia on your doorstep!

, ,


Located in the 16th arrondissement of Paris at 6 place de l'Iéna (line M9, stop Iéna), the Guimet Museum of Asian Art (Musée National des arts asiatiques) hosts one of the most complete collections of Asian art in the world. For more than a century, Emile Guimet collection has been enriched by numerous donations and the transfer of its Egyptians artworks to the Louvre in 1945, receiving in return the Louvre’s entire collection of Asian art. Built in 1889, the museum was completely renovated in 1997. After 3 years of works, the museum offers a very beautiful harmony between the 19th century architecture and the refined contemporary design. Besides the numerous permanent collections presented on 3 levels, two exhibitions entitled Infinis d'Asie - Jean-Baptiste Huynh and Fables d'Orient - Miniaturists, artists and adventurers at the Court of Lahore will be on display from February 20, 2019.
