The Asia Society is an international organization dedicated to strengthening relationships and deepening understanding among the peoples of Asia and the United States. Founded in 1956 by John D. Rockefeller 3rd, the Society reaches audiences around the world through its headquarters in New York and regional centers in Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington, DC, Hong Kong, Manila, Melbourne, Shanghai and, most recently, Mumbai.

A nonprofit, nonpartisan educational organization, the Society provides a forum for building awareness of the more than thirty countries broadly defined as the Asia-Pacific region—the area from Japan to Iran, and from Central Asia to New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Through art exhibitions and performances, films, lectures, seminars and conferences, publications and assistance to the media, and materials and programs for students and teachers, the Asia Society presents the uniqueness and diversity of Asia. The Asia Society is supported by contributions from foundations, corporations, and individuals.


Opening hours:
Tue - Sun, 11 am - 6 pm, with extended evening hours Fri until 9 pm (except July 4 through Labor Day). The Museum Galleries are closed on Mondays, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.
