  • Museum unusual, beautiful, a sort of world ethnographic museum, divided by continents. Does takes time to explore it, but it is one of those different places, outside the typical guides for tourists.

  • Permanent collection is very well represented, with good lights, sounds, beautiful, atmospheric. There are cozy corners with video also. Plenty of inspiration! Temporary exhibitions are good. Museum is open for free first sunday of the month. Really nice place close to the Eiffel tower. Looks good from outside also, with surreal lights, glass walls, hidden places and vertical garden. My favourite museum in Paris)
  • Nice museum. I personally found the collection a bit small but it is well explained, and the temporary exhibitions are always interesting. I like very much the building and the location of the museum. A bit expensive though.
  • Phenomenally interesting building with an outdoor café with a view to the Eiffel Tower. The permanent exhibition was surprisingly interesting and oftentimes amuzing or even chilling. It is a testament to incredible creativity of peoples all over the world and how differently you can perceive and treat important life events such as birth, mariage or death. A very welcome break from the quite euro-centric exhibitions of most other art museums in Paris.
  • Fabulous collection, excellent cylindrical layout and elegant presentation/curatorship of collection. Very cohesive organised collection of art and artefacts . Frustrating lack of descriptive (explanatory beyond the basics) English wall texts or audio tho...
  • Beautiful museum, well designed with a wonderful garden and environment with an interesting collection.
