  • 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.

  • Very interesting, a lot to learn about rather less widely known cultures. The museum building itself is beautiful, well designed and really fits the location. I highly recommend.
  • I work at this museum so I know it quite well. It has amazing permanent collections and often hosts temporary exhibitions that never disappoint. But the garden of the museum is worth visiting on its own. Narrow paths will lead you to cosy benches or tiny pavilions covered in plants where one can hide from the sun or rain or just have a quite moment. And you will have a view of Eiffel Tower from a quite unique angle. Did I mention that little children love visiting this museum? There are various activities for them as for adults including plays, meetings and conferences. If you ever go to this museum, don't forget to take a long walk by the river Seine along the Quai Branly.
