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.
A beautiful modern building with an even more interesting and spacious interior. The exhibits are presented in a very accessible and uncomplicated manner. Information is provided in French and English, and I suppose that more languages are available via the audioguide. The ambience is calm, with dominating dark red combined with wood and appropriate illumination. A children's activity pack (in French) is available too.
On the one hand, this Museum was beautiful, well run, laid out in an interesting way, and stuffed to the brim with beautiful artifacts from all over the world. On the other hand, all of those artifacts were stolen from their creators by violent colonialist forces. So there's that. attached you'll find a samurai so white that he makes Tom Cruise look like Wesley Snipes. Sums it up pretty well.
This is INTERESTING in capital letter! The selection of artifacts from around the world is exotic and magical, many occasions, bizarre or amusing to the extreme (this might not be politically correct, but I just feel that way). And the intention of giving these cultures a shelter is just admirable and righteous. The garden and architecture of the museum are both hidden gems right under the Eiffel Tower.
A very underrated Paris museum! Settled in a beautiful modern garden in a red walled purpose build futuristic building. Exponates are presented in a unique and extremely aesthetic way engaging visitors into journey through continents. A surprising gem
