Fodor's Review

The Asian art collection of Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller III forms the core of this museum's holdings, which span territory from Pakistan to Java and date back to the 11th century BC, and include Hindu stone sculpture, Tibetan Buddhist paintings, Vietnamese ceramics, Han Dynasty bronzes, and Japanese woodblock prints. Founded in 1956, the society has a regular program of lectures, films, and performances, in addition to changing exhibitions of traditional and contemporary art. Trees grow in the glass-enclosed, skylighted Garden Court Café, which serves an eclectic Asian lunch menu and weekend brunch. Admission is free Friday 6–9 pm (September to June). A free audio tour is included with admission, or you can take a free guided tour at 2 daily and 6:30 on Friday.
