    This museum is a pretty small box in which some 2000 gifts received by the head of the french State in the person of Jacques Chirac have been gathered. Building modern and very nice, suitable for people with reduced mobility. Modest collection. The exposed part has an air of the Museum of the Branly Quay infinitely smaller. The visitable reserves hold more than a cheerful bric to brac of luxury anyway. They are gifts made to FRANCE anyway. Note that a dragon of the weaker sex come down immediately on you if you do a photo while the guard at the entrance let you with a camera that is apparent without saying anything. Fans of shots be careful. Not unpleasant but does not justify to 100 km

    Thanks to President Chirac to have achieved this museum that reflects its recognition to the French. What more legitimate than to offer gifts received on behalf of the France. It is a real treasure, both a geographic story, a discovery of the culture of other countries, extraordinary stories of political relations of friendship between the nations. We wish the same initiative of all the presidents of the Republic, that became the gifts... gifts to friends, family, but not to the France.
