The Museum of Asian Art collection is unique of its kind in Greece and one of the richest in Europe, comprising approximately 11,000 objects, on display again after many years. It is housed in a building initially used as the headquarters of the Knights of the Order of St. Michael and St. George, the most impressive architectural work of the British presence on the island (1814-1864). It occupies the northern section of the Spianada Square, the largest and most beautiful square in Greece, which was designed by the French just before the palace was built. A collection of paintings, statuettes from China, Persian carpets, objects made of ivory, arms and naturally a large collection of rare Chinese porcelain vases are housed in the impressive high-ceiling halls of the building.
