We were so happy that we visited during late opening. Between six and nine pm on a Thursday, there were parts of the museum that we almost had to ourselves. The exhibits are eclectic and the design of the halls makes you feel like the explorers who first laid eyes on the artifacts. As you navigate through turns and into niches there is one amazing surprise after another.
I went there to check a temporary exhibition but this place is huuuuge! There were 4 temporary exhibits and the permanent collection was excellent. A wonderful place for children and adults alike. Also, it is lit up beautifully at night. Highly recommend it! Plus, you get a nice view of the Eiffel Tower from here :)
Didn't actually know about this museum, but it was a very nice experience. Gave a glimpse of old civilizations, tools they used, clothes they wore, etc. Probably an underrated museum that would be very interesting for most. Quite close to the Eiffel Tower. Highly recommend. Went as part of a group and the ticket cost only €7.
The museum is in an oasis of silence behind thick glass walls. The inside is fantastic. We visited a Japanese basket exhibit. Great !!!
You may question the architectural choices here, but not the collections: not many museums can challenge the art works on display and provided information about each piece and regional culture, while scarce, is valuable. You may want to get more from rental headsets (not worse than most guides) if you bear it. Temporary exhibits may motivate renewed visits: "Fendre l'air (something like: Splitting air) : the art of bamboo in Japan" is worth every minute you'll spend there
