Henri Cernuschi established the Cernuschi Museum as a place to hold Asian art from countries such as China, Japan, and Korea. The museum was created in 1898 in the mansion that Henri Cernuschi lived in up until his death in 1896. It is the second oldest Asian art museum in France and has the second largest collection of Asian art in the country (second only to Musee Guimet, also located in Paris). The museum currently houses over 12,000 individual objects, with the most popular being the bronze funeral masks, funeral statues, statues from the Tang Dynasty, and the large Buddha of Meguro.
