The Musée Guimet, or National Asiatic Arts Museum was founded in 1889 by Emile Guimet, a businessman and scholar from Lyon whose visits around the world allowed him to amass a large collection in a relatively short amount of time. Housed in the building that he commissioned especially for it, and with a permanent collection spanning 5500m², the museum is considered to be the largest of its kind outside of Asia.
With items from Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Himalayas, Southeast Asia, China, Corea, India and Japan, the collection is pretty much exhaustive, and Guimet even has two extra mini-museums to house more. For example, check out the Panthéon Bouddhique two minutes away at 19 avenue d'Iéna and its rooms full of Buddhas. The amazing Japanese garden with its pontoons, bamboo and tea pavilion also make for an original and agreeable break in the summer.
