  • I took advantage of the visit of some friends to go and review the MAO collection and I have to say that it is always really very nice and unique. It is a museum that I got to visit before taking a trip to the East and helped me understand some things as Well as I visited it after the trip and it reminded me of the good times of travel. The temporary exhibitions are also very beautiful.

  • The exhibition on Japan's female warriors is really to be seen, yc the film at the entrance. For permanent exhibitions, lots of objects, etc. Namely, in the bookstore there is a catalogue of the exhibition in French!

  • Beautiful collection that is displayed in spacious rooms. Always interesting themes for temporary exhibitions and great descriptions in English. A firm favourite 10 years ago and now.
  • The collection of this museum is really impressive, beautiful pieces and nice arrangements. Lights could be better to enjoy textures and details but in general is ok. Firts Wednesday of the week is free entrance. Count at least two hours for the visit.
