What's on?

The Musée Cernuschi closed for renovation works on 27 May 2019.

Description

Situated at the edge of the Parc Monceau in the heart of the Paris of business, the museum is housed inside the former private home of Henri Cernuschi, who donated his Asian art collection to the City of Paris. The museum holds a beautiful collection of Chinese and Japonese art and offers temporary exhibitions dedicated to Asian art.
The generous size and refinement of the private townhouses in the Park Monceau make this the ideal setting for prestigious events, notably in the Grand Buddha Hall.
