Overview
More
Located close to the Eiffel Tower, the musée du quai Branly exhibits 3 500 works of art from Africa, the Americas, Asia and Oceania. This important collection makes the musée du quai Branly an unmissable place for discovering the art culture of the non-European world. The museum’s original and imposing architecture designed by Jean Nouvel and its wild garden created by the landscaper Gilles Clément combine to make it a pleasant and unique place. The museum is the fourth largest museum in Paris.

This museum is really something else compared to the more traditional and famous museums you find in Paris. First of all its architecture is worth to pay attention too. Designed by the same architect who recently designed Louvre Abu Dhabi, Jean Nouvel has created a...More

We loved the temporary exhibition of demons and ghosts from Asia. And the rest of the museum is amazing. Without a doubt to recommand and way more original ( and a lot less people) than the Louvres

The plaque at the entrance touts this ethnographic museum as a "place where civilisations meet." Hardly. The West is absent, so are the great Sinic civilisations. A post-colonial smell pervades the place, all the efforts to hide the Museums origins notwithstanding. The collections are uneven...More
