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 place is awesome. The expos are always very interesting and so much upper level than any other expos you would see in other museum. Knowing that Jacques Chirac created this museum is no surprise. This guy is propably the most smartest politician in the last 30 years France had and It is very interesting to see what he has...

A freind recommended the museum, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary. An amazing world wide ethnographic collection, centered on objects from French territories and protectorates. The building and garden like setting is wonderful as is the layout of the museum. The objects are explained well with an audio guide. We spent much time and took a break for lunch and... More

The museum is located near Eiffel Tower, so as we were nearby we did enter. It is surrounded by a lovely garden which you can enter for free after a security check. All staff speaks English and polite. The building itself is nice and modern, the exhibition we saw was interesting and beautifully displayed. Downside that all boards are only... More

The musee du quai Branly is probably one of those gems that you only will explore once you've done the highlights of Paris. Its exibition is not Paris of French at all, its showing the cultures of the world in a marvelous setting (though sometimes with French descriptions only). Need something to cool down on a hot day ... definitely... More

Great museum, with many interesting exhibits. The outside is even better. Me and my daughter sat outside the cafe and whilst sitting there mummy and baby ducks leisurely strolled by our feet. Then tiny little birds just sat on our chair whilst we fed them our bread. The wildlife is so tame it was a beautiful experience.

This museum offers a great approach to non-european cultures and a great resume of Chirac's multicultural views. Interactive and musical experiences. Beautiful building and garden.
