The Museum, inaugurated in December 2008, is housed in the historic Palazzo Mazzonis, an eighteenth century monumental building .
A discerning and careful restoration has enhanced the structure and decorations and created optimal display facilities. The galleries are arranged over the three levels of the building and contain art from South and Southeast Asia, the most important Italian collection of Chinese funerary art from the Neolithic age to the Tang period (tenth century AD), religious and secular art from Japan, art from the Himalayas and a smaller but remarkable collection of Islamic art.
The ground level contains two exquisite and quite unique Japanese Gardens as well as a space for temporary exhibitions.

The most important information for visitors:
- Temperature will be taken at the entrance. The visitor with a temperature higher than or equal to 37.5 C will not be allowed to enter.
- Access will be allowed to a limited number of visitors in order to ensure adequate interpersonal distance. All the itineraries for visits will be guided by specific signs and by the staff present on the premises.
- Visitors in queue and those making the visit to the museum are required to keep the interpersonal safety distance.
- For the entire stay in the museum it will be mandatory to wear a mask correctly. - Hydroalcoholic sanitizing solution will be available to the public throughout the premises.
The Turin Museums Foundation ensures regular, constant and periodic cleaning and sanitization of museum premises.
