The Museum of East Asian Art houses a collection of almost 2,000 artifacts such as ceramics, jades, lacquers, bronzes and bamboo carvings and more, from China, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia. Situated in a restored Georgian house, the artifacts range in date from circa 5000 BC to the present day. Bath was a flourishing resort in the 18th century, when tea drinking became popular here and Chinese Armorial porcelain came to be used. The museum houses a fascinating selection of these ceramics.
