A modern day cabinet of curiosities, the Museum of East Asian Art celebrates the dynastic glories of the Orient.
Getting lost amongst the sleek cabinets of intricacies is no mean feat when surrounded by a mass of cultural and intellectual phenomenon. Whether it is the endless symbolism or the perfect symmetry of East Asian art that intrigues you, I guarantee you will not be at a loss.
The museum’s small scale and intimate layout looks to intrigue and not to overwhelm, and in doing so creates a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. This atmosphere becomes apparent as soon as one enters its trademark red doorway, and will make your visit all the more worthwhile.
