  • Amazing collection! Wonderful space. Fine location. Extensive collection that is presented such as one is not physically exhausted at the end of a visit. Be sure to see the Afghan collection, especially the iridescent glass from Begram. Spend as much of the day as possible. Be sure to explore the historic neighborhood as well. A grand area and a splendid museum.
  • Absolutely fabulous! 5 floors, each dedicated to a different region of Asia. Free for students, and good pricing for those 18-25. The ticket is good for two visits ~ which you'll need to see the entire museum! Highly recommend!!
