    Asian Art Museum Collection Highlights

    The Asian Art Museum has a collection of more than eighteen thousand objects that span six thousand years—from 4000 BCE to today—and covers seven geographic and cultural areas: West Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Himalayas, China, Korea, and Japan. The highlights of the collection include world-class masterpieces, important works, visitor favorites, and works of art that we feel will captivate visitors on their first visit or their hundredth.
