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.

A great way to spend a half day if the weather is inclement. Away from the Louvre and the Orsay crowds. Dont forget to check out the amazing vertical gardens on the outside of the building.

Well worth a visit the space where the historic artificats from all corners of the world and including clothes, jewellery, fabrics, household objects, armour and statutes, is very well designed as you travel to each continent The two hours we there passed too quickly there is a cafe and restaurant on site but this was pretty ordinary and not cheap...

It's easy to reach and as soon as you enter the grounds you enter an oasis. Beautiful peaceful grounds are a delight on a hot sunny day- as was the Cafe Branly. The Museum is partly on stilts and is an architectural delight. We visited the shop first but sadly did not find a guide book in English. The building... More

This museum is very well laid out & contains a lot of African, South Pacific, South American & Asian art & artifacts. Varied beautiful items such as masks, figurines, musical instruments, clothing, housewares & religious items. Very unique, nice change of pace from the usual Paris museums. Highly recommended!

An exhibition at the Musee du quai Branly inspired a week in Paris. Former colleague, Dr. Carol Ivory, curated the guest exhibition of Marquesas Island art and I wanted to see it. I am glad I did. Ivory assembled an impressive collection of art. The exhibition was thorough and beautifully laid out for the viewer who know little of this... More

This museum is so well worth a visit. It is dedicated to the different cultures of the world. The artefacts are beautifully displayed. There are some explanations in English, but mostly in French. Audio-guides are available. The little park round the museum is imaginatively planted. There is a good book-shop with some lovely souvenirs available. This museum is perfect for... More

Well worth a visit, if one is interested in "ethnic" or "tribal" arts. An excellent selection from the Pacific region, along with African art. When we visited, it was not crowded and the displays were easy to view. The school children were a bit excited/loud, but then again they were being children! Will visit, again, as the displays change, which... More

Currently the exhibition there is about a people called Marquesan, who resides on islands in the Pacific Ocean. Photos, drawings and videos of Marquesan people are on display and look beautiful. Artefacts by Marquesans look interesting, but the explanations are all in French. The building is stylish, and the interior design makes it easier for visitors to look at all... More
