This museum, which resides in a 20th-century Art Deco building at the heart of lush Volunteer Park, houses an extensive collection of pan-Asian art, focusing especially on works from India, Japan and Korea. Paintings, sculptures and textiles offer a cultural perspective on diverse traditions, and numerous displays (a meditating Buddha, Hindu deities) illuminate the significance and reach of Asia's many religions.
