A little gem of a place full of beautiful artefacts, nicely displayed. Not many pictures to be sure, but more than compensated by the jade, pottery, wood and lacquerware on show. More for adults than small children, I would think - though, with guidance everyone...More

This is one man's collection of exquisite artworks from jade to textiles with temporary exhibitions of note. The lovely ceramics are the reason for my own visit. Good books on Japanese ceramics in the shop.

Quite a big place (basically on a Terraced house with 3 levels) but I did expect a bit more of art work, but overall a pretty good place worth visiting.

I had heard of this museum before, but when I got there it took my breath away - okay I'm a mad collector of Chinese ceramics so this was ambrosia for me. Superbly displayed over 3 floors, the mix of ceramics, jades, lacquer and bronzes...More

This is an amazing collection of exquisite items produced in East Asia over a long period of history, 5000 BC to the present day. The items are grouped into themes with just the right amount of information about each one. It was a revelation to...More

This museum boasts that it's the only one of its kind in the UK (and I frankly believe it). Three floors of art ranging from delicately painted plates, to figurines of Buddha, to lacquered platters. I especially liked the qilin. Students get in free with...More
