A beautiful modern building with an even more interesting and spacious interior. The exhibits - basically focused on first civilisations and tribal artefacts - are presented in a very accessible and uncomplicated manner. Information is provided in French and English, and I suppose that more...More

On the first Sunday of each month many Paris museums are free, and this is one of them. On the first Sunday of October, when all the tourists were in line at the Louvre or at other famous Paris museums, Musée du Quai Branly wasn't...More
