  • It is located very close to the Eiffel Tower and the Mars countryside, and 2 blocks from the Alam-Marceau Station of the Paris Metro. It is a small museum created by Jean Nouvel, and which has a very well organized art exhibition of Asia, America, Africa and Oceania; ideal to know the different cultures and religions of the world.

  • an amazing museum that allows the discovery of little-known civilizations - the audioguide is quite interesting, but the general impression is mixed: we learn too much or not enough - there are only keys here and there, we see diversity without understanding the specificities - this remains a little disappointing overall.

  • 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.
