Asian Arts Museum - Nice












The Asian Arts Museum in Nice is well worth a visit, not least because of its scenic setting on the lake. The interior displays range from India to China, Cambodia to Japan, and Thailand to South Korea. The works of art are beautifully displayed in a cool, white interior...
















I visited on a lovely Autumn day and the rich colours of the foliage in the surrounding parkland really enhanced the beauty of the Museum and its exhibits....
















The Museum also hosts a varied programme of temporary exhibitions, and on the day I visited, there was this charming display of Indian village folk art called Mithla....















The Museum is located out near the airport in Parc Phoenix which also has a whole array of other attractions of particular appeal to children. The number 10 bus connects to central Nice. Enjoy!!

How beautiful. The lovely lines of the museum itself could compete with the treasures inside of it.

Hi Veronique - it is worth a visit - are you returning to the Riviera in the summer??

Catherine said...

Hi Fly Girl - thanks for your comment - do you know this part of the world?

For all the countless times I've been on Côte d'Azur, I've not been to this interesting looking museum. Your lovely montages tell me I missed something special.
