  • This museum is different from anyone in architecture and in the type of African art that you will find inside, incredibly enlightened and modern is a pleasure to explore it. There was an exhibition of art from the Pacific also super recommended. Location everytime you visit Paris

  • Great museum about the history of a side of the world often overlooked. The interesting exhibits coupled with a nice little garden made the Quai Branly Museum a worthwhile visit. Free for those 25 and under!
  • Good museum. The River of words installation was top notch as was the special exhibition "The Color Line"
  • You just need to see this place to better understand what brought inspiration to impressionists. Thoroughly prepared collection, displayed in a modern and thoughtful way.
  • Have a nice day and the new York NY to the way of a bit more information in this message and then you can be able at your help with CFD
  • Collection of objects of art from several "exotic" cultures around the world. It is not a must-see place but if you are interested in the so-called "primitive" cultures, it is quite amazing. If you do not have this interest, it is better to spend your time in something else. The modernist architecture of the museum is an attraction in itself.
