Beautiful, serene, educational, convenient to Old Town are a few adjectives I would use to describe this museum. The art and antiquities in here are wonderful. If you have any interest in Asian Art or artifacts this is a must see.

as an asian myself its something i am familiar with... but for non-asians they will enjoy the asian feel and will have an idea of how refined asian culture is. Drop by if you have time to spare.

This was always a hidden gem. It was recently put under the supervision of the University of Southern California and is being refurbished. Check the web, but it's currently supposed to reopen in May 2017.

Loved the building, a replica of a Beijing palace, currently a special exhibit from China, Ming Dynasty tombs, lots of bling, gold jewelry, gems in this. 18 dollars covers the special exhibit and other galleries, too bad this is closing end of June for retrofit, but when it open again mid 2017, well worth a visit. Other galleries covered art from India, China, Korea, Japan, Indonesia and S.E. Asia. Favorite thing, white jade wedding bowl and wedding jacket for 2nd best wife!

We have been here in field trips and the kids absolutely love the beautiful art work and sculpture. Although I do not think babies and toddlers would enjoy, older kids and adults will definitely appreciate.
