Quai Branly Museum - Jacques Chirac

  • Museum
  • Arts and culture
  • Folk arts and popular traditions

A place not to be missed with its contemporary architecture, its garden, its permanent collections, its temporary exhibitions, its shows, its panoramic restaurant.

Located on the banks of the Seine, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, the Quai Branly-Jacques Chirac Museum honours the arts and civilisations of Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas in an unpartitioned geographical tour.

Temporary exhibitions on a variety of themes, shows and concerts make the Quai Branly - Jacques Chirac Museum a living place to better understand our world.

A place of nature and culture, the garden, designed by landscape architect Gilles Clément, is also an invitation to travel: paths, small hills, paved paths of river stone, ponds ideal for meditation and reverie.

Extend your discovery of the museum with a gastronomic meal in the panoramic restaurant Les Ombres or a lunch in the garden, at Café Branly.
