The Corfu Museum of Asian Art is a unique Museum in Greece, solely dedicated to the art and antiquities of Far East and India, and is housed within the St Michael and St George Palace.
This neoclassical building was built in 1818-1823, when Corfu was under British rule. In 1928, it started its operation as a Museum of Sino-Japanese Art, whilst later it became a pole of attraction for many donations. Today, it includes approximately 15.000 works of Asian art from private collections and individual item donations, whereas in 1973 with the addition of 400 works from India, Pakistan, Thibet, Siam, and Southeast Asia, its strict Chinese-Japanese character changed leading to it being renamed as Museum of Asian Art.
Our Company, during its long-term cooperation with the Museum, has supplied and installed an integrated protection system comprising of:
