The Museum will be closed from Sunday 15 May through to Wednesday 8 June to undertake improvements to security and forward planning. 

Welcome to the MEAA. Explore over 7,000 years of artistry and craftsmanship at the only Museum in the UK solely dedicated to the understanding and appreciation of East and Southeast Asian arts and cultures.

We would like to ensure the safety and comfort of our visitors, volunteers and staff, and protect those who are vulnerable. We are therefore encouraging our visitors to continue to wear a face covering to protect those who are vulnerable.


Explore our vibrant online library of recorded events. Connecting you with East Asian arts and cultures, whenever and wherever you are.
