  • When you enter this space, let go of your definition of a "museum." This is a great space to see the works of other cultures that you may not find elsewhere. 
  • It's a nice surprise that this museum. The location, first, in Paris. The wonderful architecture of Jean Nouvel and finally the quality of the presented collections. Works wonderfully highlighted to better understand these civilizations at the end of the world. However it should be noted that this museum does not visit in five minutes: take your time, worth the effort.

  • We had anticipated that this museum would be the first of a series of visits in this holiday Friday... Total, 5 hours later, we were still in there. .... 2 temporary exhibitions, one about discrimination, very interesting. ... one on the supernatural, more... weird! But the permanent collection is a real treat! Twists and turns through 5 continents... Remarkable, amazing, objects always very interesting. ... No regrets not see could see that day to other museums. .. We are regaled us

  • 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.
