Corfu Museum of Asian Art reviews
An hour of interesting artefacts from Asia. In particular I liked the Japanese area but the textiles at the beginning were fascinating shedding light on a culture I know little about.

This museum is a must. Housed in the old palace, the building itself is part of history. The Asian collection is one of the largest in Europe and well displayed with special exhibition too. The collection at the turn of the century poses a deeply interesting insight into how the gathering of knowledge of other cultures had been a vital task in the formation of a nation. The current issue of imperial collecting is not casting its shadow as everything was acquired in Europe. For those aware of the importance of learning history, not only how Asia presents itself, but also how a Greek collector tried to understand Asia, it's a good choice.
This is a world class museum with so much interesting information and art. It does a remarkable job of teaching about the art and artifacts, adding context of history and culture, and teaching a little about technique. Beautifully displayed. Plan to spend some time here.
