One of the best experiences in Paris. A museum that takes you through the history of the people of the earth over the 5 continents. You cannot go out without admiring the beautiful culture of our ancestors wherever they were

Despite the modern building, this is just an old fashioned, fusty collection of ‘exotic’ artifacts, stashed in poorly lit cabinets with superficial labels. The objects are completely decontextualized- For example, there are no photographs of the objects in use or of the people who created...More

A fascinating collection of artefacts from all the continents. A good amount of information accompanying each - detailed, but not exhausting. The building itself is probably a bit like marmite - you'll either love it or hate it. I could understand that the lighting might...More

Originally this museum was not on our list but we are so glad we went. Amazing collection of African Art. Both kids enjoyed the trip. If I am ever in Paris again this will be one of my first stops.

A beautiful modern building with an even more interesting and spacious interior. The exhibits - basically focused on first civilisations and tribal artefacts - are presented in a very accessible and uncomplicated manner. Information is provided in French and English, and I suppose that more...More

If you like Oceania, Africana, ethnography, folk art, primitive/outsider art and possibly modern art you will love this place. Beautiful exterior landscaping. I have mixed feelings about the building that houses the works. Some aspects were very nice- dark, unlit main galleries offer intriguing hints...More

So, you may think I am exaggerating when I say we thought this was the best museum in Paris. Perhaps it is not the best, but it was definitely our favorite! You see, we are not what you would call “museum people”, but we went...More

When we went in October there were no queues at all for this museum but I think it is worth buying tickets in advance for the more 'popular' sites like the Concergie and the Eiffel Tower as there were long queues for them... More
