My first impression was the incredible variety of artworks and objects, through different eras and lands. Many different styles and techniques.. You are not simply facing the 'same old junk'. Not a gigantic museum, but very well curated and both fun and enlightening. Right next to the Parc Monceau.

We had the pleasure to visit this museum a few days from its re-opening after renovation. It shows some history of China, some history or art of China, and a few contemporary pieces from Chinese artists. The entry is for free (meaning, for no money; there are safety checks at entrance, it is NOT free entry). In the refurbishment, we see a minimal use of electronic displays. The labels mix up, in a confusing way, French and US English, whilst a use of e.g. italics for non-French languages would not have been too much to ask. Some incongruous bold lettering appears here and there, for no fathomable reason. The collections are quite well presented, with a good chronology-based setup. However, we were puzzled by the map (attached), which implicitly refers to the Chinese wall in the IVth century b.c. We also have to regret that the masterpiece of the Han empire, namely Chinese ideogram-based writing (in our view, a great contributor to the unification of China), is not mentioned enough. The above reservations apart, this place is a worthwhile addition to the Paris set of museums, and definitely worth visiting.

I guess your level of enjoyment with this museum, as with everything, is how much you are gripped by the topic and your level of understanding. I'm not well acquainted with Asian art so I drifted around with not a lot of insight into exhibits which are, undoubtedly, treasures The house itself is very beautiful and grand. It adjoins Parc Monceau, which is very lovely. And it's just down the street from Musee Nissim Camondo. So a visit in this area will kill lots of birds with one stone.

On rue Velazquez overlooking Park Monceau, this great little museum is a treasure. I spent a quiet hour & a half admiring their small, but really impressive collection. Admission is free, but there is a charge for the audioguide. A stroll through the park after visiting the Cernuschi is the perfect way to spend a morning in Paris.

The Musee Cernuschi is hidden away in a beautiful townhouse next to the park Monceau. My advice - go to the park and skip the museum. A very small collection badly lit and very badly exhibited. The special exhibition wasn't much better. There are so many lovely museums in Paris, including of Asian Art. Unless you are a scholar, don't waste your time and money here.
