Our Insiders' Article

Musee Guimet: a museum dedicated to Asian Art

The Musee Guimet is located in the heart of the posh 16th arrondissement, and is dedicated to Asian Arts.
It boasts the biggest permanent collection of Asian arts in France. Its collection is almost exclusively archeological objects and ancient arts, therefore excluding contemporary Asian art (visible during temporary exhibitions) and ethnological objects (displayed in the Musée du Quai Branly). 

Making the Most of It: 9 geographical departments

There are 4 floors in the Musee Guimet and the collection is divided into 9 departments representing geographical regions such as South East Asia, India, China, Japan and Afghanistan/ Pakistan.
The artworks are presented so you will better understand the history of Asian art. This off the beaten path yet unique and under-rated museum is the perfect place to discover magnificent art in a quiet and intimate venue.

Highlights: Khmer art, Indian textiles and Chinese calligraphies

The most impressive part of Musee Guimet’s collection comes from the ancient Khmer civilization (Cambodia), including some parts of the famous Angkor Wat temples - ground floor.
The Riboud collection exposed in the Musee Guimet is a one and only chance to take a close look at unique Indian textiles, usually not on display in museums because of their fragility - ground & 1st floors.
The statues and objects that come from China, Afghanistan, Pakistan and central Asia were mainly gathered by explorers that once travelled the famed Silk Road.

Curiosity: the library where Mata Hari danced

Apart from the interesting Japanese and Korean collections on the second floor (including an impressive and beautiful Samurai costume), there is a very curious architectural highlight: the library.
The shape, colors and ambiance of the library are all very different from the rest of the Musee Guimet.
Parisianist Fun Fact: During World War I, famous prostitute / spy Mata Hari, dressed up as an Indian belly dancer, performed a dance in the library. This performance was immortalized by an unknown photographer.

Conclusion: getting away from Paris

Emile Guimet (1836-1918) was a passionate traveler and after a trip around the world in 1876, he decided to collect Asian arts and create his own museum.
The Musée Guimet opened in 1888. It is the perfect area to gaze at some impressive and beautiful works of art, in a quiet and cozy place, far away from the crowds that characterize other museums in Paris.
Not to be missed if you are interested in Asian Arts.
