Off of Shoreline Drive this place is worth a short visit to enjoy some of the culture. It is usually not that busy and you might get an escorted and personal tour.

Museum is small but nicely done with various exhibits and a small store. The only way they will grow is if people stop here and it is near several other attractions.

We checked the website before we went. The museum was scheduled to be open. The door even showed a sign, "OPEN." Nevertheless, the door was locked. We knocked repeatedly - no reaction. This happened on Wed 30 Dec., 12:30. A disgusting experience!

We were surprised when we saw this museum on Trip Advisor ... so we made sure that we visited. They get an A for effort, but that's about it. Very limited exhibits ..

Poorly funded, unfortunately, but still a nice place to visit on your way out of town. Not sure about cost, but I know it's not free.

It is a small museum with only a few exhibits. What they have is well laid out and well kept. Good for an hour and after you can visit the other museums in the area that have a more to keep you occupied.

We were pleasantly surprised at the beautiful treasures in the exhibit areas. The manager was very helpful and informative. He makes the most beautiful masks that are for sale at the gift shop.

Staff is friendly and seem to enjoy educating people about asian culture. Which I love since that's the reason I went there. They have very beautiful displays and authentic asian stuff in their gift shop. WILL BE BACK.
