  • The Asian Arts Museum is a museum located in the Phœnix Park in Nice, home to Asian art collections. It was inaugurated in 1998. His pieces come in their majority of bequests to the city of Nice. The Museum was designed by Japanese architect Kenzo Tange. It is really worth to be visited, the entrance is free, and many activities are organized there: initiation to the art of bonsai, cycle of introductory courses to the arts of the far East, writing contests, tea ceremonies, etc... In addition to the permanent exhibition, other thematic exhibitions are regularly organized. Their website is very well designed and gives all the useful information.

  • A very small collection but there are fine pieces here, and well displayed, in that great rarity, a graceful and attractive modern building, nicely situated on a lake/pond (water filthy though). Eccentric zoo and charming palm house next door. Paid admission.
  • Small but well curated, it's probably an hour visit at the most. Just beside the airport so perfect way to kill a bit of time before our flight. There's not an overload of objects so I felt able to appreciate what was there better. The signage is in French but there are cards with English descriptions in each room. Beautiful building too.
