Just minutes from Bath’s Royal Crescent and The Circus, in a restored Georgian townhouse, is the only UK museum dedicated to the arts and cultures of East and South East Asia: The Museum of East Asian Art (MEAA).
Since opening in April 1993, MEAA’s unique tranquil space and rare collection has drawn a mix of tourists, scholars and students.
MEAA’s collection consists of nearly 2,000 sets of objects from East and South East Asia. The collection of Chinese art is particularly comprehensive, spanning in date from 5,000 BC to the present and covering ceramics, jades, bronzes and much more. Some of the Chinese bamboo and wood carvings are among the finest found in European collections.
Frequent special exhibitions and a rich events programme help deliver the museum’s aim of encouraging greater understanding of East and Southeast Asian arts and cultures.
