Education and outreach

What are mudras? When is the Cherry Blossom Festival celebrated? Who is the father of Ganesha, the deity with an elephant head? How has calligraphy evolved over the years? What is the role of tantra on the path to enlightenment? What distinguishes Asian art from European art? In this museum, visitors can explore the art of East Asia in all its beauty and diversity. The collection covers a vast history, featuring such highlights as the gods of India, travel along the Silk Road, masterpieces of traditional painting, modern stagings of places for religious contemplation, as well as contemporary art.

Audio guides, guided tours, workshops, and other activities can enhance visitors’ explorations of various eras in and genres of Asian art by providing background information or a more direct experience of ancient traditions. The museum also offers private guided tours. In booking your appointment, you can select a time as well as a topic that interests you.

Children can dress up in saris or kimonos, listen to fairy tales and stories of the gods, try their hands at the art of calligraphy, discover the treasures of the Chinese emperor, and practice their new Indian dance moves.

Theatre, concerts, readings, martial arts demonstrations, and dance performances – from temple dances to Bollywood dancing – are also part of the museum’s eclectic programming for special occasions. In the tearoom, there are tea ceremony demonstrations with tea tastings that take place several times a year.
One weekend during the annual Market of the Continents is dedicated to the continent of Asia and features concerts, dance, tours, and workshops.
