  • Passing by on the Quai Branly and saw that this exhibit was on. really a well done show. The African art was amazing and so well curated given the fact that she was collecting in the 30's. You can....  more »
  • Jean Nouvel's building is elegant and immersed in a garden. I'm not soso sure about the displays, designed by Nouvel and a bit too crowded for my taste. Labels are reduced to a minimum, and quite...  more »

  • This museum excels in being a nice garden and building architecturally. The space is really cool and the atmosphere thrilling. Truly a modern museum. The cafe was nice too. However as a museum I think it fails miserably. The whole permanent exhibition can be summed up with one word: brown. Almost everything is brown and rather dry. I'm biased as I guess I'm not a fan of early ethnic arts. But I just thought they could do more than just package the exhibits avoiding to regions. I can't see a story. It was also rather dark, fine if the exhibits are colorful but it was depressing when everything inside is brown....
  • A semi-hidden gem, just waiting to be discovered. This museum has so many pieces! It was amazing how it just continued on and on. A great collection from all over the world. Well done, grouped by continents. So much to see here.
  • Hidden gem of a museum. Even though its walkable from champ. De Mars not many know about this. We went on free admission and it was not much crowded. Great collections of African American Asian Indian tribal and civilization culture treasured there. Big sculptures and old heritage was a wow factor. I must say include this for a changed museum experience apart from just paintings and art.
  • Great experience, a modern, enjoyable museum shedding light on cultures most Western people know very little about. The visit can be as in depth as you want but benefits greatly from the audioguide. Very nice park outside (free entry).
  • I went there to check a temporary exhibition but this place is huuuuge! There were 4 temporary exhibits and the permanent collection was excellent. A wonderful place for children and adults alike. Also, it is lit up beautifully at night. Highly recommend it! Plus, you get a nice view of the Eiffel Tower from here.
