Musee du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac reviews
The Olmec exhibit was amazing! Very impressive stone carvings. Don't miss walking around the gardens before you leave. more »
This museum is both an architectural experience and a fantastic immersion in primal arts. From outside, the building by Jean Nouvel is nice and modern, with an original entrance through a garden but..... more »
This museum excels in being a nice garden and building architecturally. The space is really cool and the atmosphere thrilling. Truly a modern museum. The cafe was nice too. However as a museum I think it fails miserably. The whole permanent exhibition can be summed up with one word: brown. Almost everything is brown and rather dry. I'm biased as I guess I'm not a fan of early ethnic arts. But I just thought they could do more than just package the exhibits avoiding to regions. I can't see a story. It was also rather dark, fine if the exhibits are colorful but it was depressing when everything inside is brown....
A semi-hidden gem, just waiting to be discovered. This museum has so many pieces! It was amazing how it just continued on and on. A great collection from all over the world. Well done, grouped by continents. So much to see here.
