What's on?

Closed since 1996, the Musée d'Ennery has been fully renovated and will reopen to the public on 5 April 2012.

Description

Remarkable collection of 7,000 objects from the Far East bequeathed to the State in 1894 by Clémence d'Ennery, wife of the journalist Adolphe d'Ennery. His collection illustrates daily life and beliefs in China and Japan, from the 16th to the 19th centuries in a sumptuous Second Empire mansion house. The objects are shown in the Asian-inspired marquetry windows on mother-of-pearl incrusted walls. Beyond the collections presented, the tour represents the setting of this 'museum-house'.
