In the Historical Asian galleries, a collection of Neolithic ware from Japan and China and folding screens on permanent display are augmented by a focused selection of ceramics from China, Japan and Korea. These displays are complimented by examples of lacquerware, textiles, calligraphy and contemporary art.

A developing collection of South Asian art includes recent acquisitions of bronze religious sculpture and paintings which portray aspects of the ancient faiths of the region.
