This small museum is located on Monceau (à mon avis the superior Parisian park for location and content), so you might as well wander or picnic while you are up there. The museum is small, (and from what I remember) had mostly Chinese art. And...More

Desappointing ! - Facing more stupid than unpolite African staff, not allowing my spinner in the local cloakroom, though obviously not overzised .., hence I did not visit this small museum highlighting a collection of antique Asian artifacts

A small but enjoyable museum, showing the collection of M. Cernuschi, an avid collector of Asian pieces. The permanent exhibition is FREE (yes, FREE) while you must pay for the temporary ones which usually show more contemporary artists.
