In a rather recent post about Avenue d’Iéna, I mentioned the Guimet Museum with one of the largest collections of Asian art outside Asia. I also referred to a subsidiary to the museum, a “Buddhist Pantheon”, slightly higher up on the avenue. It’s installed in a former private mansion from 1913 and is thus now partly used by the museum for Japanese and Chinese art, linked to Buddhism.
The entry is free.
Behind the building is a small garden with a Tea Pavilion. Here you can participate in different tea ceremonies, but it’s opening only Thursday afternoons. I was there on a Friday and haven’t been back yet! (Maybe I’m more of a coffee drinker.)
