The museum opened in November 1982 and is one of very few in the world devoted exclusively to oriental ceramics. The collection as a whole comprises about 1,000 individual pieces catalogued as 965 items. It includes Chinese ceramics (144), Korean ceramics (793), Vietnamese ceramics (5) and Japanese ceramics (2), together with Chinese applied arts (2), Korean applied arts (10) and Japanese applied arts and miscellaneous items (6). The splendid full-page reproductions are augmented by a fully indexed catalogue including thumbnail images of each piece.
