  • This is one of my favourite museums in Paris. Lovely entrance with green wall that takes you into a parkland setting. Permanent collections in Oceania, Asia, Africa, and the Americans. We also checked out the Picasso Primitive exhibition and the African Routes Exhibition, which were very interesting. The museum shop in building opposite sells an eclectic range of products, books, films and DVDs. I learnt lots about the influence of African art in Picasso and Africa's contribution to the rest of the world. When you are done pop into the Cafe in separate building for a cool drink and snack.
  • Fantastic Museum filled with wonderful art from around the world. The Maori exhibition was on when we went and it was extremely good. Well worth a visit.
  • One of the best museums I've ever been in. Displays are unusual and fantastic. Grounds are peaceful. So, so much to see.
  • Lay out is well done, exhibits are beautifully displayed. The transition from one continent to another is done seamlessly.
  • A great museum to discover in debt non-Western cultures and art. One of a kind!

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
