    Every Sunday during the summer the gallery host free movies directed by Asian directors. Go early and explore the Buddhist exhibit in the basement and the gorgeous Peacock Room

    Xu Bing's suspended sculpture, "Monkeys Grasping for the Moon," is a must-see. Don't miss the Chinese jade collection either! -- Green Guide Editor

    Everything in the gift shop is currently 75% off. Asian style posters for $1.25 each. Mini prints for 10 cents. Can't beat that.
