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

Vintage plate 2018

You have the opportunity to discover Asian art in a wonderful atmosphere with a sweet smell of the East at the Musée Asiatica in Biarritz. In the darkness, the exhibited artworks trace 4,000 years of History according to the geographical regions. Thanks to the leaflets that can be consulted on site, visitors can take their time to extend their knowledge and better understand Asian art. A library of more than 2,000 works is also available to readers. From Tibet to Nepal, through India, collections contain works presenting cultures, crafts and religions in Asia including Buddhism and Hinduism. We discover a real kingdom of cultures and civilisations. The Musée Asiatica is a place of unique knowledge, a site in a serene atmosphere. The audio headset (French, English, Spanish) is interesting for better understanding of the extent of this very rich art. During school holidays, workshops for children are organised that arouses their curiosity and their creativity with drawing, masks or jewels.

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
