This was Paris' most fancy neighborhood toward the end of the 19th Century. This townhouse displays a private collection of important Asian art. The area around it is exquisite.

A charming mid-sized museum of Chinese art, less overwhelming than the Musée Guimet, the national museum of Asian art. The perdant collection is free, but temporary exhibitions have an entrance fee. I went to see an exhibit on the culture of incense in Imperial China...More

This small-ish Asian art museum seemed mostly Chinese to me — lovely. The non-permanent exhibitions — currently Perfumes of China — are also excellent. Combine this with a visit to the Parc Manceau adjoining.

The museum is well laid out. No photos are allowed. Interesting diverse Asian art collection with signage on French - but easy to understand what you are seeing. The staff was also very helpful and pleasant.
