  • After visiting this beautiful museum, I wanted to pack a large suitcase and leave for the wonderful Far East. The MAO is a treat in the heart of the city. Stunning how it was made, the arrangement, the set-ups, even the color of the walls! Here you can discover a lot of secrets and see a lot of statues, vases, ornaments, sculptures, tapestries and much more; all so well maintained over the centuries, to seem new! Beautiful museum!

  •  The aim was a carp painting by Maruyama, but other exhibits are also very substantial. It was also very interesting that the building itself was historic, and even though the paintings on the walls were western landscapes, buddha statues were displayed there. Oriental art such as Chinese pottery, Tibetan books and Syrian Arabic tiles are gathered in each region, and i want to see a lot of beautiful works slowly.
