Petit Futé's opinion on MUSÉE D’ART ORIENTAL-ASIATICA

Vintage plate 2020

In Biarritz, the Asiatica Museum is an opportunity to discover Asian art in an enchanting atmosphere where a sweet scent of the Orient reigns. In the half-light, the works on display retrace 4,000 years of history according to geographical regions and are organised in such a way that the visitor can discover the different cultures of these regions. With the help of information sheets and books along the way, visitors can take the time to learn more about the works and put them into context with the cultures of these periods. From India to China, via Tibet and Nepal, the collections bring together the riches of Asia in an educational way. The great museums of the world (Louvre, British Museum, Metropolitan Museum, Norton Simon, etc.) show admirable works from Greece, Italy, Egypt, India, etc., but out of context. In the Asiatica Museum, on the other hand, the Asian artworks are grouped in sections, in line with the cultures, with hundreds of objects grouped in sections equipped with tables with explanation cards or books related to the culture in question. The Asiatica Museum is a unique place of knowledge, a site full of serenity. It is interesting to opt for an audio headset (French, English, Spanish) to better understand the extent of this rich art. Note also that online ticketing is available on the museum's website. A very captivating visit.

The great museums of the world (Louvre, British Museum, Metropolitan Museum, Norton, etc.) show admirable works from Greece, Italy, Egypt, India, etc. ..., but out of context.

The only Asian art museum that adopts this concept, it presents more than a thousand pieces, including a hundred masterpieces.

On the ground floor, the second room brings together the sections of Tibet, rich in objects from monasteries now destroyed, China, Nepal with its masterpieces in gilded bronze, not forgetting the masks and tribal arts of the remote valleys of Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh.

Très beau musée, sur le thème central de l'Asie, il y a beaucoup d'objets rares, j'ai vraiment adoré. Je conseil particulièrement la salle sur l'Inde qui vaut le détour.

extraordinaire collection que dévoile ce petit musée un peu excentré ; pour un jour maussade pensez à faire un petit musée Guimet sur la côte basque ; visite qui vaut le détour
