In a relaxed atmosphere, one room after another, the Guimet Museum exposes its exceptional collection of Asian art.
Since 1889, the Musée national des arts asiatiques - Guimet has preserved one of the richest collections of Asian art in the world, the fruit of an adventure initiated by the Lyon industrialist Émile Guimet (1836-1918). Magnificently renovated, the Guimet Museum offers its visitors an initiatory journey to Asia. You will discover its thousand-year-old collections from India to Japan: Angkor treasures, Chinese lacquerware, precious Japanese prints, Indian miniatures and silks, photographic collections, Afghan archaeology, proud samurai armours... You will travel along the silk roads and the paths of Buddhism. You will also be surprised by the modern and contemporary works of Asian artists, presented as a dialogue between past and present.
Temporary exhibitions, a panoramic terrace, films, concerts, shows, workshops and conferences, a Zen garden and tea ceremonies make the Guimet Museum a place in perpetual motion just a stone's throw from the Trocadero!
Every day throughout the year between 10 am and 6 pm. Closed on Tuesday.
