The classic Bath Stone building at No. 12 Bennett Street may seem like many of the others from the outside, but head through the front door and you will be transported to a world of intricate artworks from across the globe.

Unique collections of jade, ceramics, metalware and wooden carvings fill the stunning Georgian rooms at the Museum of East Asian Art - the only museum in the UK solely dedicated to the arts and cultures of East and South East Asia.

Regular exhibitions and events bring the collection to life, and the museum shop offers a range of exciting East Asian souvenirs.
