The Cernuschi Museum is one of the oldest museums in Paris and is now the second largest exhibition space devoted to Asian art in France.

Since it opened to the public in 1898, the Cernuschi Museum, the City of Paris' museum of Asian arts, has brought together nearly 15,000 Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and Korean objects. Following a renovation project lasting almost nine months, the museum inaugurated in March 2020 a redesigned tour route, a real invitation to travel in the setting of the private mansion designed in the 19th century by Henri Cernuschi.
