What people are saying:

This is a beautiful museum with a wide variety of Asian art. I have been to this museum for the third time (three different tours) and I especially enjoyed the regular exhibitions and each special exhibition. If you visit in the fall of 2019, you can only visit part of the museum because the second floor is being maintained, but there are still many exhibitions worth seeing.
