To mark its reopening, the Buddha room unveils a monumental wooden sculpture of almost twelve meters representing dragons.

On July 25, 2023, the Buddha room (Kwok room) and the entire route of the permanent collections of the Cernuschi museum reopen to the public, after six months of closure for thermal renovation works. Improvements to the roof have been made to reinforce the building's insulation and significantly improve the museum's energy balance.

This masterpiece of Japanese art is on display for the first time in its entirety since the 1930s. It was specially restored on the occasion of the celebration of the 150rd anniversary of the return from Asia of Henri Cernuschi, founder of the museum.

The renovation project for the large Japanese architectural decor representing dragons has received support from:

la Society of Friends of the Cernuschi Museum on the occasion of its 100rd anniversary, thanks to a donation in honor of the Asia Society Japan and the Asia Society France and a donation from Guerbet France.
