  • Every year we are in Paris this Museum Of Asian Art is an absolute must to visit and spend about three hours in slow movement throughout the various exhibits.. this time the exhibit of great interest for us was the Exhibition -Buddha, the golden legend... presented was a historical description of Buddha’s life and influences on the world.
  • The Musée national des arts asiatiques Guimet, simply as a museum of Asiatic arts this is a must see attraction. However it also houses what appears to be one of the greatest collections of Buddhist art and artifacts in the world. A breathtaking array of exhibits from the last 2000 years. The museum is currently running an exhibition recounting the story of the Buddha which can only be described as 'world class'. Easy to reach by public transport, you'll find a stylish restaurant and well stocked shop on site.
