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.

We spent a couple of hours in here and totally enjoyed seeing the different types of art featured from all over the world. The museum is organized according to areas of the world - Oceania, Africa, Asia etc... Humans have always created beautiful art no matter what part of the world they are from, and this museum shows intricate pieces... More

The latest show at the Branly is a must, though ending soon. The show features African-American artists and people who were forefront in the struggle for equality in America. It showcases the 19th century to the 21st, some very dark times as well as artists, poets, cinema, music, sports etc.. Wish it were coming to the USA.

the color line-- African American artists and segregation--POWERFUL and MOVING--exhibit--ESPECIALLY as observed by an African American person at this distance . Required two visits; too much to absorb all at once. Had I had time would have returned for visits three and four. The range depth and breadth were amazing, as well as the installation methods used for the various... More

This was our first visit to the Museum Quai Branly and we were pleasantly surprised. The structures themselves, living foliage wall in itself is cool to see, but the exhibits and artifacts from around the world were extraordinary and displayed in a comfortable and beautiful environment. We were so lucky to see their current exhibit that highlighted the United States... More

I was in Paris when the museum just opened, but didn't think I should pay it a visit. Now i have and I regret that I didn't go there sooner. It is a very beautiful museum, both inside and outside. The collection is very well displayed with good accompanying texts. The layout of the museum is particularly well designed. The... More

The museum, located near by the Tour D'Eiffel, is a modern building and inside a modern presentation of african and Ozeanien art also some pieces of south east asia. Especially the collection of Ozeanien is absolutely great. A nice park as surrounding offers possibilities to relax..

Our visit for a special expo was very worthwhile, but mostly because of the materials put together for this exhibit and the way they were curated. Otherwise we have been to the permanent collection and think it is a mess. The museum is very dark and it is impossible to read the descriptions of the objects you are looking at.... More

This small little know museum to tourists, should be a must see. You will find an interesting collection of artifacts from remote civilizations in southeast Asia and Islands off the coasts of Africa. At the time of my visit there was an excellent exhibition called "THE COLOR LINE- The history of segregation in America ". This was by far the... More

When you enter this space, let go of your definition of a "museum." This is a great space to see the works of other cultures that you may not find elsewhere.
