To be honest, I was hesitant to visit the museum since I am not knowledgeable about the far east asian history and wasn't sure I would like it. I am glad I entered. The museum has a free entrance, unless you would like an audio guide which will be charged 2 euros. The museum is made up of 3 floors,... More

It's a small museum, but free. The selection is limited but of a good quality. It's worth a visit if you're in the area.

This is an intriguing collection of clothing and items of decoration and adornment that gives a small insight into how people lived in the often-rigid traditional societies. An absorbing 2-hour journey through time.

This museum is about a 5 to 10 minute walk from the airport, and does not charge admission, which is astounding considering the calibre of pieces it has and the exhibitions it features. It is a multi-layered experience on three storeys - the permanent collection is not the ground floor, while the temporary (more historical) exhibit is in the basement,... More

We went to the museum which was included in our fee to the Parc Phoenix because " we were there". However both of my daughters have studied in Asia so we were intrigued to see what they had there. We found a nice mix of the history as well as some modern art from a contemporary artist. It was a... More

The museum is next to the Phoenix park ant it is free entrance. You can pay extra for guiding. The building is very modern and the exhibition is really impressing and worth the visit. We enjoyed it very much.

Beautifully displayed modern museum with calm and friendly atmosphere. Exhibits from all eras fascinating and informative. The temporary exhibition by Wasi, who was also there in person arranging a children's exhibition from work shops he'd held all over the world. He was very personable and explained some of the symbolism in his own striking works that fused traditional Japanese methods... More

This is an excellent museum and gives a rounded view of Asian art but one that is easily digested in a short visit. It's free to enter and right next to the Phoenix Park which is right next to the airport. There is a very good exhivition at the moment on different forms of Asian theatre
