Beautiful, serene, educational, convenient to Old Town are a few adjectives I would use to describe this museum. The art and antiquities in here are wonderful. If you have any interest in Asian Art or artifacts this is a must see.

This was always a hidden gem. It was recently put under the supervision of the University of Southern California and is being refurbished. Check the web, but it's currently supposed to reopen in May 2017.
