Nearly one hundred years ago, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art was founded as a forum for cultural exchange. Since then, it has been our mission to use our remarkable collections as a catalyst for leading scholarship, groundbreaking conservation and scientific research, and exhibitions and public programs that educate and inspire.
Federal funding maintains the facilities and core operations of Smithsonian museums like ours, but we depend on our community—on supporters like you—to help learners of all ages and backgrounds to grow in empathy and global competence. Your gift of any amount ensures these programs remain free and accessible to everyone.
