2018 marks the 150th anniversary of the Meiji Restoration, a revolutionary period that shook up traditional Japanese codes. To celebrate the occasion, and as part of the 'Japonismes 2018' event being held across Paris, the National Museum of Asian Art is displaying jewellery, paintings, photographs, textiles, bronze pieces, and ceramics to illustrate the changes that happened during this period. A superb exhibition about Japanese culture that is not to be missed.

Musée national des Arts asiatiques - Guimet/MNAAG

The Musée Guimet: the quickest route to Asia! From 1889, when it was established by Emile Guimet, to the present day, the museum has continued to add to and diversify its collections. Presenting 5 thousand years of Asian art, time has not stopped at the Musée Guimet: you will be surprised at times to come across works by contemporary artists in the pared back, sobre and sleek design of the museum's exhibition spaces.

From Buddhas from Afghanistan to the Zen monks of Japan, from Indian fabrics to Samurai armour, and from Khmer treasures to Chinese fine art, the Musée Guimet offers unique collections which provide the opportunity to go on a meditative, aesthetic and explorative journey to the heart of Asia. Magnificently renovated in contemporary style, it is the largest European museum devoted to Asian art.
