Fantastic collection of Asiatic art. Lots of sculpture, lots of Buddhist imagery, spanning the whole of Asia. The restaurant (Asian food) obviously is decent - certainly good value for money. And the building itself is beautiful. Ideal for a rainy afternoon in Paris.
Unique collections of Asian artifacts. Always worth a visit. Important to note for this and other museums in Paris that have long lines: If you have a museum pass and do not need to see any special exhibits not covered by the pass, you can go around and tell a staff member and they will let you in.
