The provinces of India are presented in a long gallery where an atmosphere
has been recreated for the visitor to sense as if he were approaching
the sacred space where the gods await in the dark the arrival
and offerings of the pilgrims.
Musée Asiatica thus transports
you to the distant regions to know their culture, their religions,
their masterpieces, their craftsmanship, and if the visitor so desires,
at every stage, their history, their styles of painting and sculpture.
The visitor then emerges enriched
by this visit to Asia. He is impatient to visit there again, because
one single visit would not suffice to learn about so many cultures
Of twenty-six pages is lent to each visitor,
wherein he will find useful information on the works of art, history
and archeology of countries concerned. It's in English, French, Spanish or German.
Audio-guides in English, in French and in Spanish can be rented, which allow the visitor to concentrate
on the works of art without having to refer to the guide-book. Also
the audio-guide allows the visitor to see the regions or the art works
he prefers and to go back easily to those he wants to see again merely
by pressing the number corresponding with that on the exhibit facing
him, for detailed information.
The entry is free for Museum's temporary exhibitions.
A library of over 2000 books is available to readers by appointment.
The Asiatica Museum also offers a tea room offering hot drinks, cold drinks and biscuits for 2 euros.
