For adventure travelers, the Musée du Quai Branly is a spectacular place to find travel inspiration. The massive collection of items from Asia, Africa, Oceania and the Americas puts similar collections in most major cities to shame. Less-visited than other museums but well worth your time, especially if you are a travel addict.
This museum is devoted to showcasing ethnic art from Africa, the Americas, Oceania and Asia. It's the place to come to revel in rare Ethiopian frescoes, impressive Gabonese masks, Aztec statues and much more. The building, right by the banks of the Seine and designed by Jean Nouvel is impressive and surrounded with greenery. Exhibitions change frequently and touch on historic and contemporary cultures. Recent exhibitions include one on Australian aboriginal art, one about hair culture, and another about the development of tattoo art around the world. Displays are consistently engaging and feature research of the highest quality. If you're interested in learning more about world culture then you don't want to miss out on this one.
This museum, also called "Musée des arts premiers", presents indigenous art, cultures and civilisations from Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. The simplicity of this art, and sometimes the naiveté, fascinates me. The visit is an exotic travel in time and space. The building designed by the architect Jean Nouvel is also a good reason to visit the museum.
This museum, unlike many others in Paris, holds art exhibitions from all around the world - Americas, Africa, Asia Pacific. It is located right under the Tour Eiffel and it's shockingly modern for the banks of the Seine river. Check their exhibitions online, they usually have interesting stuff going on.
