  • 11 26, 2016. Beautiful predict minimum 3 h 00, you take full eyes. This museum is a great place, whether by its general arrangement, by the quality of the huge collections and their presentation. The surrounding garden leads to a total change of scenery, and the Museum Shop is very well stocked. In short, a must visit in Paris. I'll be back

  • Architecturally, the Museum is a great success. Beautiful staging of Marc Ladreit de Jen's non-Western art collection divided by continent. Initiated from April 2003, this young collection marks a major milestone in the evolution of the taste of its owner, until then dominated by the classical arts and modern and contemporary painting. In the exhibition, this recent "openness" to non-Western arts is materialized by a presentation in relation to fang masterpieces, Baule and dogon of classics from other fields of reference (Roman, ceramic marble Greek...). (excerpts from the website of the Museum) In short, a must!

  • Museum inspired by Jacques Chirac, and whose architecture is that of JEAN NOUVEL renowned architect. I was impressed by the quality collections, and the framework that highlights them. Visit, which need to return several times, for although all apreciate, because exposure is very dense. Kudos to the curator.

  • 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.
