The Musée du quai Branly Dec 23, 2016
The Musée du quai Branly, features the indigenous art and cultures of Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. The museum collection has 450,000 objects, of which 3,500 are on display at any given time, in both permanent and temporary thematic exhibits. A selection of objects from the museum is also displayed in the Pavillon des Sessions of the Louvre Museum.

The Quai Branly Museum opened in 2006, and is the newest of the major museums in Paris. It received 1.3 million visitors in 2013. It is jointly administered by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication and the Ministry of Higher Education and Research, and serves as both a museum and a center for research. The museum takes its name from the bank of the Seine at that location, which is named for the French scientist Édouard Branly.

The Musée du quai Branly is located in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, on the left bank of the Seine, close to the Eiffel Tower and the Pont de l'Alma. The nearest métro and RER stations are Alma – Marceau and Pont de l'Alma.

Is it art or is it culture? Mar 16, 2007
Prices varie, so I can't tell you if it's cheap, very cheap, expensive or maybe even for free (in case you can show you're a student every French museum should be for free) so I've rated this museum to be cheap. Prices are not shown on the site!

This museum is brand new at the time I visited it. Just had its first exhibition. I liked it, because it shows everyday objects from other cultures as if they were pieces of art. The museum is entirly accesible for people with disabilities. Only visually impared people will have problems.

What you'll see is mostly statues, bowls, masks and carpets. Those things are made in just about every culture. They are really shown as art, so different lighting techniques and if I remember it correctly, no signs giving you information or just a few.

In case you don't speak French... not a problem! Most employees speak English. And some speak German, Italian, Spanish and one even Dutch, :looks shocked:, yes, there was one young man who spoke Dutch to us. He barely managed, but it was Dutch.
