Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Washington DC

Asia is a rather large place, and a tour through these Asian Art museums is a bit like a travel from Japan to Turkey.

Asia is a rather large place, and a tour through these Asian Art museums is a bit like a travel from Japan to Turkey. The Asian galleries, along with the connected African Art museum are a lot quieter and more peaceful than the huge museums to the east, which can be quite a relief! Like their companion museum above, the Freer and Sackler galleries host very frequent events.
