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.

The museum has a vast permanent collection of artefacts from all continents with the exception of Europe. I would recommend taking an audioguide or a guided tour for the permanent collection as otherwise the context of the artefacts is difficult to understand. The museum also has about 4 large temporary exhibitions a year, always focused on an in depth portrait... More

We went in for a couple of hours to get out of a cold, rainy day and came out 6 hours later. What a find! As one reviewer said, this is unlike most museums in Paris, and that is saying something. A walk through just about every variety of human art & culture from the past as well as the... More

Unlike most museums in Paris the Musee du quai Branly focues on Africa, America, Pacific and Asia. Many of the pieces are startling in contrast to Western art, making it that much more exciting. Visit the Seine side of the exterior for wonderful pictures of the Tour Eiffel through Branly glass wall!

How to cover the art and culture of basically the whole world outside Europe in one museum? The Musee du quai Branly has chosen to show the highlights of art from all continents in a sober, stylish way, maybe even a bit somber sometimes. This leaves the visitor with an impression of beautiful art works, however without gaining deep insight... More

Located on the Seine River in Paris, this museum is much less crowded than the others (Louvre, Orsay, Pompidou, etc.). It offers to see the civilizations of Africa, America, Pacific and Asia. It is an opportunity to compare them and it is surprising how similar they can be in their expression of humanity. I found that the Africans are more... More

We spent a great morning here - the museum is very well laid out and we thoroughly enjoyed the exhibit. The African exhibit is huge, covering so many areas from that continent. Would definitely place this on your list if you like history and learning about different cultures. Wear comfortable shoes!

We encouraged to go there for a short visit, but found a great works. I really enjoyed more than louvre, because of ancient art works, mostly made for a tool/use, not just art work.
