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 is a museum of ethnography. We went on a rainy day not sure what to expect and the amazing moving river of words under our feet prepared us for a real treat. It is an eclectic mix of art, artefacts, architecture, weapons and clothing from all over the world set out in 'world' or continents some of which are... More

Cool architecture. Art of Oceania is fairly interesting. Close to La Tour Eiffel, so easy to walk there. Lots of cafes on the Avenue du Suffren nearby.

Worth a visit! A great museum located next to the Eiffel tower installed in a very modern building. The exhibits range from paitings to statutes and cutlery from different civilizations across the globe that we don't get to see in most world-class museums. I particularly recommend the current exhibition on African-American history in the "gardens" of the museum.

Absolutely unavoidable. This is not just an art exhibition, it is an experience. You will feel "human", "present" "emotionally disturbed", "deeply concerned", "linked with your heart to people you never met", "aware of being" and emotions of all kinds will be triggered during the two hours or more it takes to travel back in history. I love this great nation,... More

My companion and I loved the Branly, a wonderful museum displaying the decorative arts, the weapons, costumes, and artifacts of Asia, Oceania, Africa, and the Americas. Beautifully designed as if one were traveling through cliffs and valleys, with a number of wonderful videos set into small caves and lots of places to sit and contemplate. Unfortunately, the didactic labels are... More

Saw the extensive and well thought out exhibition "The Color Line" . A must for anyone interested in Afro-American history and culture. Marvelous catalogue.

I bought my ticket in advance to be sure to see this exhibit - The Color Line. Awesome exhibit with a lot of information that I had not seen before. I was so amazed, I bought entry to the Permanent Collection as well. Both parts of this museum were breathtakingly well designed and a site for sore eyes. I could... More

The place is build in a very organic way, you follow the paths and you don't feel "museum tired". There a fabulous exhibition of art from the Passific, which is most original, but the afrikanske collection is special too. In one of the rooms, you can get a glims of the Eiffel Tower, which gives you a pespective of time,... More

Phenomenal museum. The outside is beautiful as you can see from the pictures! I didn't see their permanent collection, so I can't speak to it, but I was fortunate enough to see the "Lines of Color" exhibit. It was absolutely fabulous!

Great opportunity to discover more of the life, history and customs on some less-known cultures, in particular Oceanian island tribal cultures, in this modern and very well done museum.
