Arts from around the world in the heart of Paris
The Quai Branly museum is dedicated to art and civilisation from Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. Its collections come from the Musée national des arts d’Afrique et d’Océanie (French National Museum of Oceanian and African Arts), and from the Ethnology Laboratory at the Musée de l’Homme. These collections cover periods ranging from antiquity to the 20th century. They are the heart and soul of the Musée du Quai Branly, and are exhibited in the collections area. Three mezzanines for temporary exhibits, with a multimedia space focused on ethnological research, complement this museum in the form of a bridge, designed by architect Jean Nouvel, and inaugurated in 2006. Visitors can explore the permanent collection of Native American, Aboriginal, and African art. Guided tours are available as well. Families can participate in workshops to gain a more concrete understanding of world cultures.
The Musée du Quai Branly is also home to an 18,000 m² garden, great for strolls and daydreams, with paved paths and walkways, gentle hills, and ponds.
