Museums of the Far East and its collection

Museums of the Far East

The Museums of the Far East include three Asian buildings on the royal estate of Laeken: the Japanese Tower, the Chinese Pavilion and the Museum of Japanese Art. At the beginning of the 20th century, they were commissioned by Leopold II and designed by Alexandre Marcel. The tower addresses European "Japan mania" and the pavilion displays Chinese export porcelain. The Museum of Japanese Art is located in the carriage house and displays a collection of traditional Japanese art, mainly from the Edo period (1600-1868).
