Queues for the Eiffel Tower can take over an hour at busy times but this skip-the-line tour lets you breeze past the crowds and enjoy priority access. Head straight up to the second floor and listen as your guide points out the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, and Notre Dame Cathedral. Finally, continue to the top floor on your own, where you can spend as long as you like admiring the views.

Private museum but a hidden gem for anyone interested in African art and culture. Incredible sculptures and masks with some dating back nearly 1000 years. Beautifully curated with nice lighting and interpretation and a lovely gift shop also. Definitely worth seeking out.

This small museum organized a beautiful exhibition from their own collection which spanned "African" art from various cultures on the Continent. It is worth a visit.

Although we have been to Paris a number of times, we had never heard of Musée Dapper and even our Parisian friends didn’t seem to know it. We almost had the place and the friendly museum staff to ourselves. A pity really because this little museum is well worth a visit. The special exhibition «Masterpieces from Africa» (until June 17, 2017) presents some 130 exhibits from Central and West Africa (altars, headdresses, jewellery, masks, statues, weapons …). Many are displayed in free-standing glass cases so they can be viewed from all angles. There is a lot of reflection to take pictures though. Written explanation (geographic origin, meaning and use in society) is provided in French, but an English translation is available at the reception. Downstairs there is a little shop and an elegant cafeteria, which was unfortunately closed when we visited. The entrance fee is 6 euro; admission is free on the last Wednesday of every month. Musée Dapper is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. (10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday). Closed on Tuesday and Thursday. The museum can easily be reached by public transport. It’s a short walk from metro lines 2 (Victor Hugo), 6 (Charles de Gaulle - Étoile or Kléber) or 1 (Argentine) or RER line A (Charles de Gaulle-Étoile). Busses 52 (Paul Valéry) and 82 (Victor Hugo) stop even closer by. Don’t miss the house where French poet and writer Paul Valéry lived from 1871 to his dead in 1945 just opposite Musée Dapper, at N. 40. Valéry is buried in his native town, Sète, at the cemetery he celebrated in his famous poem ‘Le cimetière marin’.

This Museum appears to display only a fraction of its collection at a time due to a relatively small space. The quality of the art works is high,labeling is not always all that helpful particularly as far as the age of the artifacts. Would certainly appeal to anyone interested in African Art.

Not even Parisians know of this museum, and yet it is just a stone's throw from the Arc de Triomphe in the chic 16th arrondissement. The museum has long-term exhibitions mostly centred on African and Pacific Island art. The exhibits are always fascinating, incredibly well presented (lighting, description etc.) and, because the museum is not well-known, it is always quiet. You can sometimes have the place almost to yourself and that's not something you can say about many museums in Paris, especially not ones that have exhibitions of this calibre. Recently the downstairs Café has been revamped and offers interesting and delicious Franco-African fusion food. there is also a very nice bookshop which stocks works, e.g. African or Caribbean kids' stories difficult to find elsewhere. Well worth a trip.
