  • This museum is very modern from an architecture perspective. The design of the Museum is original because continents are intertwined with each other. There is provision of audio-guides that are very well done for 5 euros. I think we can stay for days in this museum or go back because the collections are extremely rich. What is surprising is that the collections (on inaccessible shelves) are part of the Museum. I had never seen that before. Your kids will love.

  • We are not lovers or specialists of art first... We therefore visited this Museum "to see". The development of the proposed works is great. It is nice to walk in this museum. My knowledge did not allow me to access all the information available or all appreciate at its true value, I did not become an expert, but I had a nice time in this beautiful Museum. A criticism all the same: the words River which gives access to the collections is - it not a bit too bombastic... (I couldn't help but think of all that we could have done on the other in a too large space heated...) . The outdoor garden is very friendly.

  • The place is interesting in its design, but the content remains to be desired. Management of waiting for exhibitions is to review, and the "walk" in the Museum seems to have no end.

  • 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.
