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 is somewhere we could have spent half a day, probably more. Such a beautiful array of art from around the world, organized thoughtfully, and displayed beautifully. On a horribly busy day at all the monuments and other museums during the height of tourist season,...More

This exhibition focuses on horror ghosts,devils and hell in Asian cultures. Emphasis is on Japan and China. Many of the exhibits come from the museum ‘s collections. Contemporary stuff includes a number of videos. The gruesomeness of the topic is not to everyone ‘s taste.

There's no shortage of art museums in Paris, but this one offers something quite different by showcasing Indigenous art from around the world. It's organized by region (Asia, Africa, Americas, etc.) and is quite extensive. If you're into this kind of art allow yourself a...More

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
