  • The building

    The Département des Alpes-Maritimes commissioned the renowned Japanese architect Kenzo Tange to design a building that would be used as a museum and a meeting place for exchanges between the Asian arts and Western culture.

  • The permanent collection

    Based on a selection of iconic works evoking Asian cultures, combining court arts with popular and tribal expression, the museum's collection reconciles genres that have traditionally been split between history, ethnography and decorative arts museums, while also embracing contemporary art whose roots can be found in the traditional.

  • The museum shop

    As a continuation of the museum’s concept, the museum shop demonstrates both the longevity and the quality of art in Asia.
