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 exhibit was very interesting. Even though they limit the number that goes through at any one time, there were still too many people to make it comfortable. The museum is beautiful and amazing. One gets lost in time and space. I go there every time I'm in Paris.

We've travelled to Paris many times, but never visited this unique and unusual museum. It's near the Eiffel Tower and easy to find. With Eurostar 241 offers, it only cost 9€ for the two of us. It houses art, sculpture, jewellery, artefacts, etc from Africa, Asia, Oceania and The Americas. The unusual and rare exhibits date from BC to the... More

We first visited the Musee du qui Branly just after it first opened and again recently. Some of the displays we took our grand daughter along to see had changed and we found out later were on loan to other museums. However, there is so much to see that we still thoroughly enjoyed our visit. There is not a lot... More

Really enjoyed my trip to the museum. It's set in a lovely garden, which would be great to have a coffee or a drink in; there is a small outdoor cafe, but it was closed when i went, in the evening time. Admission was included on my Paris Museum Pass. There were no queues for admission. The museum itself is... More

The museum is quite small, but it is nicely built and well located. the gardens are nice - end of the afternoon visit is recommended for the lights and the quietness of the place.

We just saw a show about the art of American Plains Indians at the Metropolitan Museum and were struck by how many items came from the Musee du Quai Branly, so we decided to visit during our current trip to Paris. The museum has an astonishing collection of artifacts from around the globe and is organized by region - Asia,... More

Très beau musée. Il nous a fallu deux après-midis pour visiter l'intégralité de la collection permanente. On en apprend beaucoup grâce aux objets sur les cultures de différents continents: Amérique, Océanie, Asie, Proche/Moyen-Orient et Afrique. Les explications sont utiles et synthétiques et sont partiellement en anglais. On circule facilement dans ce musée et malgré la foule de visiteurs, il est... More
