The Asia and Pacific Museum in Warsaw

The Asia and Pacific Museum in Warsaw The Asia and Pacific Museum in Warsaw

It is a remarkable museum without a permanent exhibition, with 18,000 exhibits. The aim of the museum is to promote cultural areas in Asia, Australia and Oceania. It was established in 1973, when private collections gathered by Andrzej Wawrzyniak during his stay in Indonesia were passed there.

Museum collections include everyday objects and art of Afghanistan, Southeast Asia, namely Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam, metalwork from Central Asia, China's jewelry and pottery, cold weapon from Indonesia and Nepal - including the famous khukri knives used by the valiant Gurkha. The oldest exhibits come from China, including the stone head of 6th-7th century A.D. and from India - the stone heads in the style of Gandhara from 1st to 4th century A.D.

Since the museum has no permanent exhibition, it presents its collections in different places of the city, especially in the Asian Gallery. These are temporary exhibitions on the chosen theme.

The Museum also conducts museum lessons for children and adolescents.
